Pulsemaster Sponsors the 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields

  • PEF

Pulsemaster is sponsoring the upcoming 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine, and Food & Environmental Technologies (WC2015). The event is scheduled to take place from September 6th to 10th, 2015, in Portoroz, Slovenia, with over 350 participants expected to attend the congress.

Strong pulsed electric fields impact cellular membranes by inducing reversible or irreversible structural changes and/or alterations in the transmembrane voltage.

In the food sector, the focus is on a deeper understanding of effects at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels of foods, process-product interactions, and the integration of technologies into existing and new processing concepts for biomaterials. Additionally, experimental and simulation tools developed and applied for studying these aspects will also be a significant part of the discussions.
