Simplicity for Success
PRP Preparation
 
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative and promising approach in tissueregeneration. PRP is dened as an autologous concentrated preparation of plateletsand their associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma [1]. Platelets area natural source of a myriad of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios [2].
Therapeutic Effect of PRP
PRP is thought to promote physiological wound healing and rapid soft and hard tissueregeneration by delivering growth factors at high concentrations to the treated site.
PRP Growth Factors
Upon activation, platelets release growth factors and other molecules stored in their
α
granules, which are part of the natural healing process. These growth factors areregeneration-associated signaling molecules, such as Platelet-Derived Growth Factor(PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF), Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF),Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) andothers. These molecules regulate the healing cascade, including inammation ,cellproliferation, reepithelialization,angiogenesis and tissue remodeling processes [1-2].
Platelet Activation
Platelets may be activated via addition of activating substances, such as thrombinand calcium chloride. However, It has been postulated that in situ activation ofplatelets (caused by injection and exposure to in situ coagulation factors, such ascollagen, exposed endothelium) results in a slow release pattern of growth factorssecretion, which may be benecial for stimulating a continuous healing response [3].
PRP Applications
PRP’s safety and effectiveness have been established for accelerating soft and hardtissue healing in treatment of tendinopathies [4-6], osteoarthritis [7] and various jointand muscle pathologies in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine [8]. PRP may be usedas a standalone treatment or as a biological adjunct to other biomaterials, such asbone substitutes [9], hyaluronic acid, collagen and mesenchymal stem cells [10].Moreover, PRP has been used extensively for treating Chronic wounds [11*], inPlastic [1, 12*] and Oromaxillofacial surgery [9].

Features and Benets of the Tropocells
System
Effectiveness
Enables high platelet concentration by reducing the volume of plasma.Rapid and simple one step process – only one centrifugation and one primary tube is used.Adjustment to a specic clinical application by controlling the nal PRP volume.Specially designed accessories for OR setting.
Safety and Quality 
Closed, biocompatible and xeno-free system, minimizing safety concerns.Approved medical device by the European (CE) and USA (FDA) Regulatory Authorities (FDA clearancefor orthopaedic applications only).Manufacturing under EN ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 Quality System International Standards.
Unique Biological Prole
Specially designed Separator Gel allows optimizing of Tropocells™ PRP biological prole by:
Maximal concentration of platelets rather than creating a gradient, which leads to lower platelet yields.Virtually eliminating granulocytes from PRP, which are considered not benecial in terms ofregeneration process and may contribute to a catabolic effect by secreting catabolic mediators,including metalloproteinases [13].Eliminating undesired erythrocytes, which have been shown to signicantly decrease broblastproliferation and augment apoptosis in vitro [14].Remnant of mononuclear cells present in PRP assists in ghting infection and is thought to enhanceanabolic effects of PRP [15].
