Transforming food. plant cell electropermeabilisation.

Opening cells using Pulsed Electric Field Technology

The Plant Cell

The plant cell passes through the PEF treatment area.

By applying the pulsed electric field, the cell membrane becomes charged. This leads to electrical compression which results in pore formation (electroporation).

Cell structure is left undamaged, water and soluble solids are able to leak out of the newly opened pores.

Larger cell components cannot exit through the pores and are retained within the cell.

the cells is now softerand much easier to process.

Inactivating bacteria with electropermeabilisation.

Extending shelf life using Pulsed Electric Field

Inactivating Bacteria

the bacteria moves between electrodes in a conductive medium.

Positively and negatively charged particles are attracted to their respective electrodes. When the field strength exceeds the transmembrane potential, pore formation starts, forcing the cell membranes to open.

The bacteria is now inactivated (dead). RIP Bacteria.

Stressing bacteria with electropermeabilisation.

Extending shelf life using Pulsed Electric Field

Stressing Bacteria

the bacteria moves between electrodesin a conductive medium.

Positively and negatively charged particles are attracted to their respective electrodes. At reduced energy levels, the polarisation mechanism is inducing a stress response and stimulating cell activity.

increased growth, higher functionality and enhanced production rates of valuable ingredients.
