The creation of surface modified human term placental amnion by electrofusing human cells onto its surface has been thought of. A multiple-pulse electrofusion protocol with 10 square pulses of 10-μs pulse length, and electric field of 0.2 kV cm-1, can make erythrocyte-amnion tissue electrofusion possible. The protocol devised merge the cell-tissue-adherence steps with fusogenic pulse. The finding opens up a new avenue of cell electrofusion onto human tissue with minimal procedural complexities.
