If you’re like us, you’re seeing a much higher demand for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) systems in your practice. This post explains what you need to know about PRP and covers the options provided by Bellus Medical.
Platelet-rich plasma is easy to prepare, and the process can typically be done in less than 30 minutes. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge, which separates platelets from red and white blood cells. By isolating the platelets, you’re able to produce a plasma fraction of blood that has a higher concentration of platelets than whole blood typically has. You can use the platelet-rich plasma with the confidence that it will not cause a rejection or allergic reaction in your patients; after all, it’s part of their own blood.
ProGen by Bellus Medical is a great option if you’re looking for a PRP system with maximum flexibility.1 You can prepare as little as 7 mL or as much as 40 mL, depending on the platelet concentration level. And those levels can range from 2x to 5.1x. This control over volumes and concentrations means ProGen can deliver whatever your patients need.
RegenLab is an easy-to-use PRP system that is reliable, rapid, and reproduceable.2 The kits come in two configurations, both designed for the one-step preparation of autologous platelet rich plasma from a small initial volume of blood. The A-CP-2-Kit comes with a single butterfly needle and two tubes, and the A-CP-3-Kit contains three butterfly needles and three tubes. Because of its simplicity, RegenLab may be the best choice for most treatments.
We designed these two systems to meet the unique needs of your practice. To learn more, please reach out.
1ProGen intended use: The ProGen PC Kit is indicated for the rapid preparation of autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient’s point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft/or allograft bone prior to the application to a bony defect for improving handling characteristics of the graft.
2RegenLab intended use: All models or A-CP-K Family kits are designed to be used for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient’s point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft and/or allograft bone prior to application to a bony defect for improving handling.
