Cold Plasma device kINPen®VET


The plasma jet is operated under atmospheric pressure with the noble gas argon, creating a physical cold plasma with a temperature of approx. 40°C. Plasma is an ionised gas and is described as the fourth fundamental state of matter. It contains not only electrons and ions, but also UV radiation, excited oxygen and nitrogen species and electromagnetic fields. The interaction of these components creates the disinfecting and wound-healing effect of cold plasma. Microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, as well as multidrug resistant pathogens are eliminated physically. Apart from activating the immune system, cold plasma also encourages cell proliferation and angiogenesis. The plasma enables very good tissue regeneration with minimal creation of scar tissue. Due to the way it works, the kINPen®VET is a physical alternative to antibiotics. Over 200 publications from human and veterinary medicine prove the versatile properties of cold plasma. The publication list can be found here.


In veterinary medicine, the kINPen®VET is predominately used for surgery and dermatology. But oncology and dentistry are also possible fields of application. The treatments focus on chronic wounds and wound healing disorders, such as wound dehiscence, necrosis or emergence of seromas, as well as multidrug resistant infections, pyotraumatic dermatitis (hotspots), mycoses, otitis externa, intertrigo and pyoderma.

By using the kINPen®VET applicator, the cold plasma can be applied precisely to the wound in need of treatment, even deeper or hidden wounds and cavities. During treatment, the wounds are traced in meanders and as evenly as possible, at a moderate speed of approx. 5 mm/s. The intensity of treatment depends on the length of treatment and should amount to 20-30 seconds per square centimetre of treated wound. The short treatment is painless and can be performed without sedation. The simple handling of the plasma jet means that it can be integrated easily into existing practice procedures. An interchangeable spacer makes sure that the correct distance is maintained during treatment. The compact equipment trolley for the kINPen®VET makes the device portable for mobile treatment.
