New Advanced Electroporation System for Vaccine Development at BTX

Published: Apr 11, 2012

April 11, 2012 --The New AgilePulse® In Vivo Electroporation System possesses unique, variable pulse amplitude technology for vaccine delivery or gene therapy applications.

Patented Pulse Agile™ waveforms consist of multiple, low to high voltage pulses with variable pulse lengths, which promotes greater cell membrane poration; resulting in maximum transfection efficiency with minimal damage to the cells or tissues. Gene expression in skin is 100-fold higher1 when delivery is enhanced by electroporation compared to injection alone.


- Patented Pulse Agile® technology

- Resistance measurement for proper needle placement and reproducibility

- Specially designed needle arrays for intra-muscular or intra-dermal applications


- Enhanced immune response1

- Increased Ag-specific T-cell response1

- Gene expression is 100-fold higher1
