However, I see several problems with what you are trying to do: The wavelength at 100 mHz is about 3 meters. 1/4 wavelength, which is the smallest useful part of a wave, is still much larger than the cell. I would think the cell is millimeters or micrometers in size, so a much higher frequency would be more useful. Further, a biological cell is not a good conductor, so the induced current will be small and the re-radiated wave miniscule. If you could get enough energy into the cell to produce a detecable output, it would fry the cell.
Perhaps light waves would be more useful, you could see what was happening.
