Electroporation is a process of the biophysical effect on cells exposed to an external electrical field is gaining applications in medical treatments, especially to create pores through a cell membrane and allow uptake of DNA into a cell. Therefore, in the theoretical evaluation of electroporation, transmembrane potential and characteristics of the cells growth is the target of the analysis. In this study, we measured the relation between amplitude and duration, used cervical cancer cells (HeLa cells) to be sample for electroporation, because HeLa cells is one of the most well-known cell lines, and easy to researched by continuous harvesting of large numbers of HeLa cells for in-vitro experimental tests. Cells were submitted to single pulses, at constant field strength of 2kV/cm, at various pulse durations from 30μs to 600μs. As a summary, it was found pulse duration equal to100μs is associated the HeLa cell growth rate faster confluence in comparison to the cell with 30μs, 300μs and 600μs pulse duration.
