RegenKit THT Autologous Platelet Platelet-rich Plasma (A-PRP)
Product Description 1,6,7
The RegenKit THT Autologous Platelet-rich Plasma (A-PRP) system aids in the separation of the patient’s own blood components through the use of the RegenKit THT vacuum tube and clinical centrifuge. RegenKit THT A-PRP is designed to deliver an increased concentration of bioactive factors and proteins through the concentration of platelets from whole blood. Once the blood is drawn into the RegenKit THT vacuum tube it is then spun under centrifugation according to centrifuge operating instructions. The PRP prepared using the RegenKit THT is a platelet-rich plasma preparation with high platelet recovery and viability, a physiological level of leukocytes, and contains the entire plasma component of blood, which is rich in growth factors. The platelet–rich plasma is collected with syringes and can be mixed during application at the patient’s point of care.
Indications for Use
RegenKit-THT is designed to be used for the safe a rapid perparation of autologous platelet rich-rich plasma (A-PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient’s point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft and/or allograft bone prior to application to an orthopaedic surgical site, as deemed necessary by clinical use requirements.
