The original and seminal [14]-[17] papers on the permeabilization of living cells using pulsed magnetic fields takes a large interest in scientific society as it can be applied as contactless method of the well-known electroporation phenomenon [18]-[22], when high up to 30 kV/cm electric fields are applied over cell membrane, which causes an increase of cell transmembrane potential.
This process is called electroporation and considers that the membrane permeabilization can be reversible or irreversible depending on the membrane's capability of resealing the pores after the removal of the electric field [2, 5].
