Unique solutions for fast 
pre-cleaning, drying and active storage of endoscopes

AquaTYPHOON™, PlasmaTYPHOON™,  and PlasmaBAG™ improve efficiency and sustainability in endoscope reprocessing

The creation of an innovation

In 2011 PlasmaBiotics was founded in Paris, France, as a young and innovative company specialized in the drying and storage of endoscopes. Its core products: the PlasmaTYPHOON, an ultra-fast drying unit for endoscopes, and the PlasmaBAG, a single-use bag for active storage using plasma technology. 

The products deliver superior and efficient performance by significantly reducing endoscope reprocessing times. These innovations minimize the risk of bacterial contamination through a highly effective drying mechanism for the endoscopic channels and active endoscope storage using plasma technology. The PlasmaTYPHOON and PlasmaBAG System work with most current endoscope reprocessing protocols.

In 2017, PlasmaBiotics was awarded the first prize at the Innovative Medical Companies Awards by the Alliance for Biologic and Medical Engineering. 

In 2018, PENTAX Medical, a division of the HOYA Group, acquired a controlling interest in PlasmaBiotics SAS, to strengthen the hygiene portfolio and the continued focus on reducing cross-contamination risks.

It was in 2022, when PlasmaBiotics presented the next generation of PlasmaTYPHOON, the PlasmaTYPHOON+. At the same time, a storage bag with a more sustainable approach was introduced as well, the PlasmaBAG ECO.

The latest addition to the range of solutions is AquaTYPHOON, which revolutionizes the pre-cleaning of endoscopes, even in the non-brushable channels of endoscopes.
