Plasma-generated Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) technology has strong potential for low-temperature sterilization needs in the healthcare industry, and others such as wearable consumer electronics, where decontamination is necessary. CUA has developed the Singlet-oxygen Plasma Afterglow Reaction Chamber (SPARC) to address these needs. A target application of our SPARC system is a compact sterilization chamber for medical equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE). Also being explored is the use of SPARC technology for decontamination of NASA sample collection equipment for future space missions.
