Currently, much attention is paid to low-temperature atmospheric-pressure plasma as an agent for gentle antimicrobial decontamination. In this work, data on the efficiency of low-temperature plasma for antimicrobial decontamination of polyethylene terephthalate track membranes used as corneal implants in keratoplasty are presented. The obtained results show that 30-, 60-, and 90-s exposure to low-temperature plasma has a gentle decontaminating effect on track membranes.
