Everything you need to understand plasma technology all in one place.
The Henniker HPT-100 benchtop plasma system is being put to good use within the Department of Polymer and Biomaterials Science at the West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin (ZUT) where Dr Peter Sobolewski and his colleagues are working in the area of polymeric biomaterials.
Hoya Lens has had a presence in the UK for over 30 years in which time they have brought some of the best quality lens materials to the UK optical market. The main challenge here was to identify suitable plasma cleaner parameters for the delicate lens materials, read on to see how we worked together to solve the issues faced by Hoya.
Vention Medical is a globally integrated solutions partner for the design, engineering and manufacturing of complex medical devices and components. Read about the work completed to activate the PEEK surface of medical devices to improve the PAD printing process enabling complete print adhesion.
UHV critical components, such as those used extensively in surface science laboratories and particle accelerators, are required to meet strict cleanliness criteria of which pre-installation cleaning is an important step. Daresbury Laboratory based in the UK and a centre for worldwide particle accelerator technology, approached Henniker Plasma to look at the potential of oxygen plasma cleaning as part of the stringent pre-cleaning process.
Biomaterials are any material, surface or matter that forms a boundary to, and interacts with a biological system and as such they are frequently developed, used and adapted for novel medical applications. Our plasma treatment systems play a key enabling role in this exciting field of research, as discussed below by Dr Julien Gautrot.
Thin-Film Layers for Fast Diagnostics
Functional thin film layers, such as those that can be manufactured using plasma deposition techniques, are central in many microelectronics technologies. Microvisk are developing these techniques in the production of new diagnostic devices for point of care blood clotting test devices, the extremely hydrophilic surface of the sensor ensuring that even when using a tiny drop of blood, the viscosity can be accurately defined.
