Anyone who has been dealing with both the classical 'long' pulses (microsecond or millisecond range) and the much more fashionable 'short' ones (in the nanosecond range) will agree that moving from micro to nano made everything more expensive (generators, oscilloscopes, probes) and more complicated from the metrology point of view. However, most electropermeabilisation results are strikingly similar whatever the pulse duration. Is it therefore worth the effort?

With this in mind, this talk will focus on the parallel between the long and the short pulses. Several aspects of electropermeabilisation will be addressed: electromagnetic modeling, efficiency of electropermeabilisation in vitro, resealing time, effect of repetition rate and electrical properties of a permeabilized membrane. Hoping to point out all the similarities to better understand the real differences.
