  • A-PRP®/ PRP™ is the patient's platelet concentrate prepared with RegenKit®
  • The physician draws a small amount of venous blood and isolates the red cells from a platelet concentrate, embedded in its own plasma. The entire process takes less then 10 minutes.
  • As A-PRP® is processed from the patients own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment
  • What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)?

    PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.

    To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.
