Stimulate natural collagen production and the regeneration of cells with Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. Designed to be independent of operator technique, Selphyl PRP delivers on the safe and rapid preparation of Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix.
PRP by definition refers to platelets in plasma, where platelet concentration is generally considered to be twice the normal concentration in whole blood. The definition of PRP does not contain Red Blood Cells (RBC) or White Blood Cells (WBC). These cells should be removed as much as possible from a PRP preparation. Other kits tout high platelet concentrations — often at the expense of contaminating RBCs or WBCs — which are known to have just the opposite effect.
Completely Closed System
The Selphyl® System is a completely closed system and can convert PRP to PRFM with the addition of a precise amount of calcium chloride. This initiates the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting cascade. The fibrin matrix serves as three-dimensional scaffolding to maintain the platelets at the site of injection. This scaffold also serves to protect the platelets, allowing the release of growth factors which can be sustained over a longer period of time.
Many PRP systems require immense operator skill which can result in varying results. Another risk is extensive contamination with red blood cells and white blood cells. Selphyl® removes virtually all contaminating cells — a process completely independent of operator technique.
Extensive Safety Profile
The Selphyl® system is designed for safe and rapid preparation of Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small blood sample at the patient point of care. PRP is converted to PRFM, creating a scaffold that serves to protect and preserve platelets. Think of Selphyl® PRFM as the next generation PRP.
