Scalpelectroporation® allows both micro-molecules and macro- molecules to be safely delivered into the body without modification of the ionic drug solutions pH, Electrolysis effect of the ionic solution itself and the process causes no damage to tissue and cells, solving the problem traditional Ionthophoresis systems usually cannot.
SEP is also different from Electroporation which uses high voltages on the skin and can cause unwanted side effects on the patient. Instead, Scalpelectroporation® uses low electrical pulses that are controlled in value, time duration and electrical characteristics. It is safe, highly effective with minimal pain for optimal results.
Previously, macromolecules (1-2mil dalton) were not able to be delivered transdermally using traditional Ionthophoresis, but now such substances can successfully be delivered using SEP technology.
