Futurlab offers a simple-to-use, non-invasive kit for collecting and extracting PRP, an invaluable ally for treating a number of pathologies requiring tissue regeneration.
A support therapy with tangible results in just a few simple steps!
By withdrawing whole blood from the patient (autologous withdrawal) and centrifuging it, the platelet component is separated out to obtain platelet-rich serum up to 4 times richer than basic blood.
Since it is autologous collection, there is no risk of rejection.
What it is
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a blood component containing a high concentration of the growth factors that actively participate in repairing and regenerating damaged tissues.
How it is obtained
Using Futurlab's closed system, withdraw a maximum of 20 ml of whole blood from the patient to be treated with the syringe provided, taking care to first aspirate Sodium Citrate in a ratio of 1:10.
1. Transfer the whole blood sample into the cylinder and seal it with the cap.
2. Centrifuge the blood using a centrifuge with soft start and stop to avoid platelet resuspension. It is always advisable to insert a second cylinder opposite the sample for proper balance. The recommended speed is 2200 RPM, for 8 minutes.
3. Whole blood is subdivided as follows: PPP (Platelet Poor Plasma), PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), buffy coat, and hematins.
4. Once separation is achieved, attach the female/female connection cap and attach an empty syringe for component transfer.
5. To transfer the component into the syringe, use the innovative screw plunger that allows the concentrate to separate slowly without risk of resuspension. The Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be divided into two syringes and the buffy coat selected.
6. Once the PRP has been separated from the corpuscular portion, attach the infiltration needle taking care to create a sterile zone. A platelet gel may be obtained by adding calcium gluconate.
PRP administered to the injured area jump-starts biological repair while also exercising a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. It is eventually reabsorbed by the body and replaced by new tissue.
The procedure is extremely simple and risk-free, and guarantees a product whose platelet content is an average of 4 times higher than that of whole blood. It is suitable for many applications, including orthopedics, dentistry, ophthalmology, dermatology, surgery, and traumatology.
