Brief presentation of the institution

The Institut für Bioprozess- und Analysenmeßtechnik is a non university research institute funded by the Freestate of Thuringia.
It is dedicated to the investigation of phenomena at the interface between biological material and technics. About 60 researchers with wuite spread background (physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers, technical staff) work in three departments: Analysis Measurement Technique, Bioprocessing, and Biomaterials.
The institute is involved in education through a joint course on Miniaturized Biotechnology together with the Technical University of Ilmenau and the Fachhochschule Jena.

Main Electroporation related topics

Currently, the most work in electroproation is on high voltage treatment of biogas substrate as well as cell electroporation, both on single cells but also cell suspensions and cell monolayers.
Single cells are treated in conjuction with impedance measurements for detection of these cells while monolayers are treated for cell desorption.
Cells in suspension are mostly treated for uptake of external substances.
