Centrifugal Blood Cell Processors, Autologous Platelet Separation

Definition : Centrifugal blood cell processors designed for the automatic production of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and/or platelet-poor plasma from a small quantity of autologous blood. These devices typically consist of a dedicated portable centrifuge with electronic controls, a display, and a kit of disposable items including a separation chamber, syringes, needles, and tubing. Autologous platelet separation systems are designed for use at the point of care as well as in the clinical laboratory. These devices may typically be used during surgery to obtain PRP to mix with autograft and/or allograft bone for orthopedic applications; the plasma and PRP obtained may also be used for diagnostic tests in the clinical laboratory.
