Plasma sterilization methods have been studied for over 20 years in Japan and around the world, and are currently being developed for practical application. However, persisting challenges, such as the speed of the sterilization treatment, treatment of pathogenic proteins on medical equipment, and the compatibility of plasma with materials of medical equipments, currently limit the widespread application of the techniques. This paper introduces research into plasma sterilization for practical use, which is currently being carried out.
