Economic Methods for Preparing Platelet-rich Plasma


While platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is a popular method in many medical fields, such as cosmetic surgery and dermatology, it is still expensive to process.


The discovery of a new, economical method to prepare PRP has been reported. This method involves a modification to a disposable 5-mL needle that can be inserted into a centrifuge. Then, the needle is positioned on the centrifuge so that the PRP separates from the tip.

The platelet-derived growth factor (BB) in PRP is measured using anticoagulant dextrose (ACD-A), heparin (heparin), and either prostaglandin E1 or (PGE1) as an anticoagulant. To get a brief knowledge about this method, you can hop over to this site

These are the results

This new method created PRP with a high platelet-derived growth factor (BB) in all conditions. The highest value was achieved by using PRP preparation kits. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a common treatment nowadays in the cosmetic dermatological field.

It stimulates fibroblasts within the skin and makes them produce collagen fibers. As PRP is made from one’s self blood, the treatment is regarded as very safe. The problem exists in rather a high cost of the PRP processing kit considering its mild efficacy. If there were a more economical way to process PRP, this treatment would become more popular and common.
