Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a progressive non-surgical healing treatment in a variety of fields.
PRP is a fraction of autologous plasma with supraphysiological concentration of platelets.
Platelets contain α granules, which comprise cytokines, growth factors and bioactive proteins essential for tissue repair and healing. Upon injury, platelets initiate blood coagulation and release growth factors that activate the healing response ( PDGF/ TGF/ VEGF/ EGF etc.)
The Tropocells® Autologous Platelet Preparation Kit is intended for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft or allograft bone prior to application to an orthopedic surgical site.
