Platelet Rich Plasma is used in a broad range of healing applications
What is GLO PRP?
Human blood contains among other things red blood cells, white blood cells and serum, or plasma, but also some amount of platelets (thrombocytes). Platelets are tiny cell fragments that circulate through our bloodstream. Platelets main responsibility is to stop the bleeding in case of injury. Crucial function is also to repair wide range of injuries and diseases in both soft and hard tissues. This is possible due to many growth factors incorporated in platelets as part of the natural blood flow. If blood platelet count falls below normal, the condition is called thrombocytopenia. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that is enriched with platelets. As a concentrated autologous (naturally derived from the same individual) platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissues.
Preparation of the GLO PRP is simple and straight forward. 1 ml of Anticoagulant Citrate Dextrose Solution (ACD-A) or Sodium Citrate is added into a sterile GLO PRP syringe and 9 ml of whole blood is drawn from the patient. The GLO PRP syringe is then placed into a tube holder of the Glofinn's centrifuge and a counterweight is placed on a tube holder on the opposite side. The parameters of centrifugation is found in the Glofinn's centrifuge manual. A patented GLO PRP Kit separates plasma and red blood cells (RBC) by separating the RBC into the attached RBC collector. After removing the RBC collector, PRP concentrates are found at the bottom of the tube. PRP concentrates are ready to draw directly into an injection syringe for a procedure / applications. The concentration of PRP is adjustable by varying the amount of utilizable dose.
Use of PRP procedure has 40+ years of history, showing its benefits in various healthcare and medical industry. PRP has been successfully applied in many fields, such as orthopedics, sports medicine, wound healing, aesthetic surgery, dentistry, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, urology, veterinary, prolotherapy, cardiothoracic and maxillofacial surgery.
