The experimental chamber was encircled with the coils. For control experiments the current flowing in the coil was zeroed by switching off the waves generator. During the entire exposure, the cells were observed on the inverted microscope.

The exposure system based on coplanar waveguide consisting of an open propagating structure with a dielectric substrate on which three metallic strips are deposited. A glass was chosen as a dielectric substrate to replace the microscope head stage.
The direction of E-field was almost parallel to the Petri dish surface and perpendicular to the glass surface.
