GALAXY
WAVEFORM

Bubbles in the heart and the brain are never good. The proprietary WAVE1 waveform produced by the CENTAURI PEF System has largely eliminated
this concern.

Bubbles Are Not a Concern

Non-contact: Contact or extreme proximity is required since blood is a highly conductive current shunt. Electrons follow a path of least resistance, even with PEF.  A specific force range probably matters less for PEF than RF. 

Monopolar is unacceptable due to muscle contraction: The Gala Therapeutics and Galaxy Medical clinical data strongly suggest otherwise. By understanding the biology and biophysics, contraction effects can be mitigated.

Galaxy's Wave1 Waveform &
Heat Signatures

PEF delivers tens of amps through a resistive tissue load. Heating cannot be avoided; control is the key.

Our testing has shown a very low heat signature using our proprietary WAVE1 waveform and dosing scheme.

Proximity & Tissue Planes

Provide “Selectivity”

It appears that a combination of electrode proximity, tissue plane effects, and related E-field discontinuities may cause what appears to be tissue selectivity.

PEF energy utilizes high voltage, high frequency pulses to ablate tissue

  • Induces cellular apoptosis more than necrosis, yielding gentle cell death

  • Can be non-thermal, but waveform parameters and dose are critical

  • Extremely sensitive to tissue planes

PEF makes focal ablation better

  • Safer than RF because of the non-thermal mechanism of action & sensitivity of the energy to tissue boundaries

  • Increased safety profile will give greater confidence to deliver transmural lesions, improving efficacy

  • Focal lesions are deep, wide, and consistent

  • Faster than standard RF

  • Contact is critical to enable predictable lesions
