About DBDI

DBD Innovations Pty Ltd (DBDI) is developing novel methods and devices that make use of the electric discharge (plasma) that is created in the air gap between two electrodes, one of which is covered with an insulator (dielectric).
This unusual phenomenon is known as Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD). It has a very wide range of industrial and medical applications.

Analysis of Materials

DBD Innovations Pty Ltd (DBDI) is developing a novel, proprietary method for testing insulating materials using Dielectric Barrier Discharge plasma in air. This patented technique is applicable for analysing any non-conductive composite that is bonded to a conductive substrate.

Medical & Cosmetics

Enhanced trans-tissue delivery of therapeutic substances. The DBDI solution is to enhance the efficacy of existing remedies by applying a small electronic device to the treated area. The Dielectric Barrier Discharge is created in air between the device electrode and the tissue. The chemicals go in deeper and faster, augmenting the therapy.
