WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
PRP, by definition refers to platelets in plasma, where the platelet concentration is generally considered to be twice the normal concentration in whole blood. Nowhere in the definition of PRP is there a description for including red blood cells (RBC) or white blood cells (WBC) – in fact, these cells should be removed as much as possible from a PRP preparation. Some kits that tout high platelet concentrations often do so at the expense of having contaminating RBCs or WBCs – these cells are known to have inflammatory and catabolic effects – just the opposite of the desired effect. If the PRP in the syringe has any tinge of pink or red, it is mostly likely that you are injecting a preparation that has RBC contamination. The ideal PRP solution will be a golden, straw-like color.

The Selphyl® Process
- During a short office visit (30 minutes), a small amount of a patient’s own blood is drawn into a vacuum collection tube containing a cell separator gel.
- The tube is then placed into a centrifuge and spun for six minutes to separate the blood into a supernatant plasma/platelet suspension.
- The red and white blood cells are located below the cell separator gel.
- The platelets and plasma are then transferred in a closed system to a second vacuum tube containing a small amount of calcium chloride solution.
- Fibrin polymerization begins and the PRP remains liquid for approximately 10 minutes before forming PRFM.
- The patient’s own PRFM is ready for use as deemed appropriate by the clinical use requirements.
