Electroporation is the phenomenon in which permeability of the cell membrane to ions and macromolecules is increased by exposing the cell to short (microsecond to millisecond) high voltage electric pulses [1]. The application of the electric pulse can have no effect, can have a transient effect known as reversible electroporation, or can cause permanent permeation known as irreversible electroporation (IRE) which leads to non-thermal cell death by necrosis [1, 2].
