e·lec·tro·por·a·tion

(ē-lek'trō-pōr-ā'shŭn),
A technique in which a brief electric shock is applied to cells; momentary holes open briefly in the plasma membrane, allowing the entry of macromolecules (for example, a way of introducing new DNA into a cell).

electroporation

(ĭ-lĕk′trō-pə-rā′shən)
n.
A process of applying a high-voltage electrical pulse to a living cell, causing temporary permeability of the cell membrane, through which a foreign material such as DNA may pass.

electroporation

[-pôrā′shən]
a type of osmotic transfection in which an electric current is used to produce temporary holes in cell membranes, allowing the entry of nucleic acids or macromolecules (a way of introducing new deoxyribonucleic acid into the cell). See also transfection.

electroporation

a method in which CELLS are subjected to an electrical impulse that leads to the temporary formation of pores in the cell MEMBRANE. Such pores enable commodities such as DNA, PROTEINS and ATP to pass into the cell, before the pores are repaired. Electroporation provides a means of transforming cells (see TRANSFORMATION). It can also be used to deliver DRUGS across the skin and to transfer GENETIC MATERIAL to targetted cells, in GENE THERAPY.

electroporation (i·lekˈ·trō·p·rāˑ·shn),

n technique by which cell membranes are made permeable by rapid pulses of high-voltage current. Has been used to treat cancers.

electroporation

the use of high-voltage electrical impulse to create pores through a cell membrane and allow uptake of DNA into a cell.

In this work we present a flexible microsecond electroporator optimization using PSPICE model of the device, which can be used to estimate the influence of transient processes during pulse generation and allows design and implementation of the compensation circuit for parasitic load handling and damping.
In order to determine the influence of the parasitic components and develop a compensation circuit for the microsecond electroporator a PSPICE model has been introduced.
