This volume presents the proceedings of the 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food a Environmental Technologies (WC2015). The congress took place in PortoroA¾, Slovenia, during the week of September 6th to 10th, 2015. The scientific part of the Congress covered different aspects of electroporation and related technologies and included the following main topics: Am Application of pulsed electric fields technology in food: challenges and opportunities Am Electrical impedance measurement for assessment of electroporation yield Am Electrochemistry and electroporation Am Electroporation meets electrostimulation Am Electrotechnologies for food and biomass treatment Am Food and biotechnology applications Am In vitro electroporation - basic mechanisms Am Interfacial behaviour of lipid-assemblies, membranes and cells in electric fields Am Irreversible electroporation in clinical use Am Medical applications: electrochemotherapy Am Medical applications: gene therapy Am Non-electric field-based physical methods inducing cell poration and enhanced molecule transfer Am Non-thermal plasmas for food safety, environmental applications and medical treatments Am PEF for the food industry: fundamentals and applications Am PEF proce ss integration - complex process chains and process combinations in the food industry Am Predictable animal models Am Pulsed electric fields and electroporation technologies in bioeconomy Am Veterinary medical applicationsPulse waveform, voltage and intensity in the treatment chambers were fed into a digital oscilloscope (Tektronix TDS 210, Tektronix Inc., USA). ... A platinum wire counter electrode and a saturated calomel reference electrode were used. ... field strength (20-40 kV/cm), time (100-300 I¼s) and Stevia rebaudiana concentration ( 0-2.5%, w/v) on ascorbic acid. ... The range of independent variables was established considering the sample characteristics and the operating conditions of PEFanbsp;...
