Blood is drawn from the patient and is placed in a Magellan centrifuge for an initial “soft” spin to divide out plasma and platelets from red and white blood cells. The type of centrifuge is extremely important, as they vary in the amount of platelets they are able to collect. The Magellan Centrifuge is of the highest quality and effectiveness available. Make sure you ask before you pay!!!
The "soft" spin is followed by a “hard” spin that further concentrates the platelets into platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-poor plasma (PPP) components.
The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the site of choice. The platelet concentration in the PRP can be 5-10 times richer than usual!
