Precision Pulsed High Voltage: Electroporation Enabling Medical and Life Science Innovations


Two key issues are driving the need for state-of-the-art power solutions: first, the rapidly increased rate of adoption of pulsed electric field and pulsed field ablation for next-generation electrosurgical treatments and, second, the advancements in life science innovations particularly in gene therapy and cell transfection. One of the biggest system-design challenges in electroporation applications is the precise control and delivery of high-voltage energy.

This 30-minute Webinar will show how cutting-edge switching technologies can improve pulse rise/fall times with increased waveform accuracy and control. This, combined with state-of-the-art efficiency and reliable power conversion topologies, enables precise, high-voltage energy delivery, which is critical for electroporation-based innovations.

Topics Include:

  • Applications of electroporation in the electrosurgery and life science space
  • Precision, pulsed, high-voltage technology enablers
  • Controlling voltages to deliver faster rise and fall times with pulse width and frequency control

An audience Q&A with the speakers will follow the technical presentation.
