|Abstract:||Non-equilibrium plasma discharges have been recently proposed to be an effective tool for the removal of proteinaceous residuals from heat-degradable medical instruments. However, the knowledge regarding plasma-protein interactions is still relatively poor, which is a serious drawback for the validation of this technique as well as for its optimisation. This is, among other reasons, caused by the limitations of currently used techniques for monitoring of the rates of protein removal during plasma treatment. The objective of this article is to present an alternative method of evaluation of protein removal, based on imaging ellipsometry, which allows fast and semiquantitative analysis of the treatment efficiency.|
