Irreversible electroporation Animation


The NanoKnife® system utilizes the power of irreversible electroporation (IRE). NanoKnife® technology uses this power to destroy diseased tissue.

Two or more needle electrodes are positioned in or around the diseased tissue in order for high-voltage pulses to be delivered to the tissue, creating nanopores within the cell membrane. This stimulus causes apoptosis in the targeted cells, causing ablation of the diseased tissue.

The mechanism of action (MoA) animation explores how this medical device allows for the tailored treatment of diseased soft tissue through surgical ablation.

The animation can be found on the NanoKnife® product website and is featured on the technology page of the site.

Stills from the animation have been utilized across the NanoKnife® website and on the product page of the AngioDynamics website.

‘‘Their turnaround time sets them apart from the rest of the field. The fact they can turnaround lots of comments in a couple of days is impressive, whereas that took weeks with other agencies we worked with. They’re well above the benchmark.
Oncology Clinical Liaison, Bristol-Myers Squibb

‘‘It was a combination equally of quality of work but also the comfort and confidence that I knew I would be working with PhDs. They gave me the confidence that they would have the ability to understand. The other companies didn’t have those sorts of people on staff, they were just good animators. That was the area where I felt that I could trust Random42 would deliver.’’
