About Platelet Rich Plasma

How are the platelets concentrated?

In order to benefit from these natural healing growth factors the platelets must first be concentrated.

This is a brief summary of the alocuro PRO-PRP protocol.

To prepare PRP, 15 to 30mls of blood is taken from the patient using a venepuncture technique almost identical to having a standard blood collection for pathology testing. The whole blood sample is then carefully introduced into the Alocuro PRO-PRP device, which is then placed in a centrifuge. A specific protocol of centrifugation is used to isolate a platelet rich plasma component of the blood from the whole blood sample. This PRP component is then withdrawn from the device and under strict aseptic conditions is carefully injected to the site of injured or degenerative tissue. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors needed for tissue regeneration by up to 1000%.

What is the Benefit of PRP?

PRP’s benefit is the ability to precisely deliver multiple, complementary growth factors at the injury site in a powerful biological and physiological concentration. See below for those growth factors found or initiated by platelets:
