The Journey of Platelet-Rich-Plasma Step 2

From Extraction to Injection
After blood is drawn, it is placed in a centrifuge that separates fluids of different densities through centrifugal force. This process results in the blood separating into three distinct layers.

During Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) centrifugation, the blood separates into:

1 – Platelet-poor plasma (PPP) at the top
2 – A buffy coat rich in platelets (PRP) in the middle
3 – Red blood cells (RBCs) at the bottom

After the centrifugation is complete, the buffy coat, enriched with platelets, is extracted from the vile and used as a concentrated platelet solution with powerful healing properties. This solution can be injected or applied to promote the patient’s tissue healing and regeneration.
