Schreiner Group (Oberschleißheim, Germany) received the special jury prize at the Bavarian Innovation Award for an outstanding innovative and technologically complex product development. Dr Ulrike Wolf, ministerial director at the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, presented the prestigious award for the medical product "Coldplasmapatch", also known as CPTpatch. This is a high-tech pad for the treatment of wounds that is based on printed electronics. It generates cold plasma that kills multi-resistant bacteria, promotes cell regeneration and can thus heal chronic wounds – even if they were previously considered incurable. Schreiner Group realised the innovative product together with the medical technology company Coldplasmatech.
