The interaction of the cold atmospheric plasma jet with fibroblast cells was studied. Plasma jet was initiated in the helium flow blowing through the syringe by application of high ac voltage to the discharge electrodes. The plasma jet had a length of 5 cm and a diameter of 1.5–2 mm in ambient air. Treatment of cells with plasma jet resulted in decreasing of cell migration rate, cell detachment, and appearance of “frozen” cells, while treatment with helium flow ?no plasma? resulted in appearance of frozen cells only.Avariety of cellular responses was explained by different intensities of treatment.
