Electroporation: Unlocking Remarkable Potential

  • PEF

Electroporation is a fascinating natural phenomenon with immense potential. The video below, supported by the European COST project, illuminates the reasons behind its significance.

Increased Membrane Permeability

Electroporation leads to increased cell membrane permeability through high voltage electric pulses. This cutting-edge technology enables molecules to either enter or exit the cell, a process not typically feasible for numerous significant molecules under normal conditions.

Addressing Pressing Challenges

Electroporation offers viable solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges in health, food, energy, and the environment. Enhancing the effectiveness of chemotherapy and gene therapy, improving food processing, and optimizing biotechnological processes are just a few of its myriad applications. It presents a remarkable opportunity for scientists, developers, and investors alike.

European Collaboration

COST – European Cooperation in Science and Technology – is an intergovernmental European framework dedicated to fostering and coordinating European community research in electroporation. The project also involves participation from the industry sector, enhancing its scope and impact.
