About Pulse Biosciences

Pulse Biosciences is a novel medical therapy company bringing to market its proprietary CellFX™ System utilizing the Company’s proprietary Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (NPS™) platform technology. The Company’s CellFX System provides a novel, precise, non-thermal cellular treatment technology delivering nanosecond duration energy pulses that impact cells in treated tissue while sparing surrounding non-cellular tissue. This unique mechanism of action disrupts the functions of internal cell structures while maintaining the outer cell membrane, initiating a cascade of events within the cell resulting in regulated cell death. The novel characteristics of the Company’s CellFX System mechanism of action has the potential to significantly benefit patients across multiple medical applications, including dermatology, the Company’s first planned commercial application. Beyond dermatology applications, NPS has demonstrated an ability to induce immunogenic cell death in several cancer cell lines in pre-clinical studies. The Company believes its NPS platform technology may play a future role in immuno-oncology as a focal tumor treatment that can initiate an adaptive immune response.

Caution: Pulse Biosciences’ CellFX system and Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) are for investigational use.
