Tropocells PRP is manufactured in an ISO 7 cleanroom, with critical phases performed in an ISO 5 environment.
Our gel separator PRP kits are made in an ISO 13485 certified and FDA registered facility.
Several validated and required tests* are performed by third party certifying agencies on our separator gel kit to ensure patient safety for autologous application:
- Delayed Hypersensitivity Test (GMPT)
- Cytotoxicity Test by Elution
- Acute Systemic Toxicity Test
Over 800,000 patient cases have been safely performed worldwide with our system since 2013.
*To request copies of these tests please contact your Transcend Biologics representative. PRP companies without these tests cannot guarantee safety or quality of the product.
All PRP products are considered Class II Medical Devices by the United States Food and Drug Administration. All products being sold for the purpose of collecting PRP for point of care autologous applications must obtain FDA Class II clearance by obtaining a 510(k) prior to being sold in the US.
Tropocells PRP® 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 a bony defect for improving handling characteristics.
