The Journey of Platelet-Rich-Plasma Step 3

From Extraction to Injection

After the process of centrifugation, the blood components are quickly separated based on their relative densities.

Red blood cells and inflammatory white cells are intentionally trapped beneath the separator gel of the collection tube. The majority of the platelets in the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are now located on top of the gel itself.

The plasma column above the gel is known as platelet-poor plasma, of which various amounts can be easily removed prior to resuspending the platelets.
