This work presents the study of microbicidal effects of positive flashing corona, negative pulseless corona and glow corona discharges and the comparison of their efficiency in the point-to-plane arrangement in water suspension. The flashing corona seems to be the most effective one, however the interval of optimal parameters is wide. The total inhibition of microorganisms becomes after 75 s or 8-10 min of exposition for bacteria or yeast, respectively. A hypothesis explaining the different
