What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets which circulate through the blood. Produced from an individual’s own blood, these concentration of cells are critical for blood clotting. The liquid plasma and platelets of the blood are required for cell recruitment and essential for cell multiplication and cell specialization that is required for healing. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the blood into its many components. Platelet rich plasma can then be collected and treated before it is delivered to an injured area of bone or soft tissue, such as a tendon or ligament.
Eclipse PRP, provides patients with the best enriched plasma, including platelet count and growth factor analytics. Extensive studies show, in comparison to other PRP purification devices, the patented process of Eclipse PRP™ renders the highest supra-physiologic concentrations of platelet counts and up to 8 biologically active growth factors, such as: PDGF, TGF, EGF, CSF, KGF & VEGF.
Features & Benefits
- Convenient procedure – takes less than 30 minutes
- Reproducible system – easily fits into practice
- Small volume of blood needed – better for patients
- Best Value – highest volume PRP Yield: ~6 mL’s of PRP per 10 mL tube
- Consistent platelet concentration – allowing for predictable performance
- Pure PRP – High-tech gel removes the most contaminating red and white blood cells
- No foreign components – virtually eliminates the risk of adverse reactions
- During a short office visit a small amount of a patient’s own blood is drawn into a 10 mL vacuum collection tube containing a proprietary separator gel.
- The tube is placed into a centrifuge and spun for 12 minutes to isolate the platelet- rich plasma.
- The contaminating red and white blood cells are located below the separator gel.
- The PRP is ready for use according to the clinical use requirements. Yielding ~6 mL’s of injectable PRP.
