This article presents a numerical study of the electroporation process of spherical cells suspended in an electrolyte solution, using the equivalent circuit method (ECM) for field calculation proposed by Ramos et al. A model for the electric conductance of the cell membrane derived from the analytical and experimental results obtained by Glaser et al. for(More)
An intense electric field can be applied to increase the membrane conductance G(m) and consequently, the conductivity of cell suspension. This phenomenon is called electroporation. This mechanism is used in a wide range of medical applications, genetic engineering, and therapies. Conductivity measurements of cell suspensions were carried out during(More)
Conductivity measurements in suspensions of biological cells have been used since many years for electroporation effectiveness evaluation. However, conductivity modeling by means of instantaneous values of current and voltage during pulse application does not take into account the effects of the sample reactance and the dielectric dispersion of the medium.(More)
