Centrifugation is an easy and safe way to obtain PRP (platelet-rich or thrombocyte-rich plasma) from the patient’s whole blood which is then re-injected into joints, muscle tissue, tendon tissue or into the skin.
Thrombocytes contain a large amount of different growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines which have regenerating effects on the tissue and promote cell growth.
