„More and more medical practices are using the PlaMedi as additional protection against pathogens“
Evolution of air sterilization – plasma!
If the recent covid-19 global pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we are still ill-prepared against pathogens. Masks, HEPA, and hand sanitizers: are they still enough?
At Plabio, we knew there was a better way to protect ourselves – a solution with more coverage. So during the outbreak, we’ve pioneered a way, through cold plasma technology, for people to create safe personal spaces that are clean and pathogen free.
Say hello to the PLAMEDI Air Mini.
The problem with filters – mask and HEPA
HEPA filters are commonly known as filters with the highest filtration grade efficiency. But as effective as HEPA filters are, they are limited to capturing particulate matter and pathogens that are above 0.3µm in size. Many types of bacteria and viruses are far below that.
Filters – including ones used in masks – only collect pathogens. They do not not destroy them. When pathogens are only collected, they are susceptible to regrowth. In humidity, HEPA filters may retain enough moisture to enable bacteria or mold to grow (Seong et. al., 2014).1
What makes matters worse is that air circulation can cause mold spores, bacteria, and viruses to be released from the filter back into the air stream, a process known as “reentertainment” (Jankowska et. Al, 1999).So, eventually, you’ll be breathing infected air again.
This is how the PLAMEDI Air Mini works.
1. Cold plasma generator
PLAMEDI Air Mini is the 1st handheld device to emit millions of plasma ions, propelled into the air by a special-grade BLDC blower fan and generated by Plabio’s proprietary PB-7 plasma module. All you need to do is turn it on.
2. Air and surface disinfection
The hundreds of millions of plasma ions emitted into the air react with membranes and protein shells of pathogens (virus, bacteria, etc) that consist of hydrogen (H+),where OH- plasma ions ultimately destroy the pathogens.
OH- + H+ = H2O -> Sterilization.
3. Particle capture
Plasma ions use electrostatic attraction to stick to particulate matter, ultimately weighing the matter down to ground for cleaning.
Plasma ions reacts to and destroys odor causing gas compounds such as ammonia. Furthermore, plasma is effective against toxic gas such as VOCs.
PLAMEDI Air Mini technology with efficiency and comfort
If your device uses ions to disinfect the air, then you’ll probably want to know how many ions it can generate at a given time.
Why? The more ions, the more effective.

Did you know?
At Plabio, we pride ourselves in our capacity to generate more plasma ions than any company in the world. Our core technology is our ability to generate industrial level plasma at a module-level.
PLAMEDI Air Mini neutralizes pathogens !
We’ve tested our device against the most rampant and harmful pathogens and have consistently killed 99.9% of all subjects.

2. Airborne Influenza A test conducted by Guangdong Institute of Microbiology (Guangdong Detection Center of Microbiology, 2020)
3. Staphylococcus aerus, E.coli, P. aeruginosa, and more test conducted by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL, 2020)
PLAMEDI Air Mini is effective against VOCs !
When we conducted tests on our devices, we had one main goal – how realistic can we make the conditions? So we decided to use a 1㎥ chamber for testing – roughly the size of your personal space in a vehicle.
