Strong pulsed electric fields can induce irreversible pores in the membranes of biological cells and their organelles. Thereby an efflux from the cytoplasm can occur and substances accumulated in the cell become accessible. Therefore pulsed electric fields can be applied for the production of basic materials for chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries… CONTINUE READING
