Handheld plasma flashlight rids skin of notorious pathogens

http://www.physorg.com/news/2012-04-han ... rious.html

The plasma flashlight, presented today, 5 April, in IOP Publishing's Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics is driven by a 12 V battery and doesn't require any external generator or wall power; it also doesn't require any external gas feed or handling system.

In the experiment, the plasma flashlight effectively inactivated a thick biofilm of one of the most antibiotic- and heat-resistant bacteria, Enterococcus faecalis – a bacterium which often infects the root canals during dental treatments.

After reading the short synopsis, Royal Rife and Nikola Tesla come to mind.

230 degrees Centigrade is a bit more than any "room temperature" I would choose! Obviously a misprint.

How does the Plasma know the good biologic from the bad? I bet Royal could explain how this happens. (In his day of course)
I sense a disturbance in the farce.

A couple of random thoughts. The zero (0) in "230 C" may be a random typo, or it may have been intended as a shorthand for the "degrees" symbol, wherein selecting the exponentiation function to emulate it didn't work. 20-23 C does seem a lot more friendly and room temperature like than 230 C!

The photo (or illustration - pretty small) looks like it has blue light leakage. This may be a sign that the plasma may be effective because it is radiating in the UV range and a little lower, down into the visible blue. The higher the photon frequency, the more energy it contains, and UV is a known killer of bacteria, not to mention possible carcinogen. This invention may just be a miniature tanning bed for those pesky bacteria. "The pathogens go in, but they don't come out (tan)." Wish they had made more details of the "plasma flashlight" public, but there may be money involved in conjunction with a medical equipment company, so that lack of candor is understandable if they are trying to get a patent to monopolize it for a while.

VERY interesting!!
Seems to be some more vindication to the "electric" side of biology as suggested by the work of people like Dr Jerry Tennant and others.
It also lends some credibility to the old Violet Ray devices and what I had said in another thread about using a regular plasma ball on sites of minor injuries or infections. LOL! See, it does work.

The researchers ran an analysis to see what species were present in the plasma and found that highly-reactive nitrogen- and oxygen-related species dominated the results. Ultraviolet radiation has also been theorised as a reason behind plasma's success; however, this was shown to be low in the jet created by the plasma flashlight, adding to the safety aspect of the device.
The temperature of the plume of plasma in the experiments was between 20-230C, which is very close to room temperature and therefore prevents any damage to the skin. The device itself is fitted with resistors to stop it heating up and making it safe to touch.

ScienceDaily (Apr. 4, 2012) — A group of Chinese and Australian scientists have developed a handheld, battery-powered plasma-producing device that can rid skin of bacteria in an instant.

So no sunburn, like with UV. Now where is the Tesla immersion-mode device ?
