The Interpretation and Use of the Rotation of Biological Cells

  • Conference paper

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)

Abstract

The application of electric fields to cell suspensions has resulted in the evolution of three new techniques — those of cell rotation, reversible membrane breakdown and fusion. Although these methods differ in the order of magnitude of field involved, they have several concepts and physical parameters in common. Owing to the subject area of this conference, neither breakdown nor fusion will be discussed here, and have already been reviewed earlier (1, 2, 3, 4).
