Electroporation device

SCHEDA BREVETTO

Abstract:

The device (10) comprises a forceps-type member (20) carrying first and second electrodes (12, 14) and a grip member (34) carrying a third electrode (16). The third electrode (16) is movable independently of the first two (12, 14) in order to vary the spatial configuration of the electrical field generated by the device and thus enable the range of action and efficacy of the device to be increased.

Advantages:

This known device has therefore the advantage of increasing the range of action by making it possible to adjust the distance between the electrodes, and of enabling the efficacy of the electroporation to be improved by controlling the electrical pulses applied to the electrodes as a function of the distance between the electrodes.
The electroporation device according to the invention is also economical to produce and can advantageously be made by using a forceps-type electroporation device already available on the market and adding a third electrode.

Application field:

ELECTROTHERAPY; MAGNETOTHERAPY; RADIATION THERAPY; ULTRASOUND THERAPY

Technical board:

1. Electroporation device (10) comprising a forceps-type member (20) and first and second electrodes (12, 14) carried by the forceps-type member (20) so that they can be moved towards and away from each other,
characterized in that it further comprises a third electrode (16) movable independently of the first and second electrodes (12, 14).

2. Electroporation device according to Claim 1 , wherein the first and second electrodes (12, 14) are designed to be both connected to the same polarity, whereas the third electrode (16) is designed to be connected to the other polarity.

3. Electroporation device according to Claim 1 or Claim 2, wherein the first and second electrodes (12, 14) are designed to be connected to different polarities.

4. Electroporation device according to any of the preceding claims, further comprising a grip member (34) which is separate from the forceps-type member (20) and carries the third electrode ( 16).
