We had a good example yesterday of how important it is to quantify the orthobiologic and also how much variance there can be in the same patient on the same day. Our first draw resulted in 12.43X LP-PRP with a nice shift away from granulocytes(decreased). The patient decided they wanted to treat an additional region so we drew more blood. About a 30 minute time interval max. Exact same tech, same doc, same centrifuge, same hematology machine, etc…. and this time the PRP was 7.29X LP-PRP with a shift away from granulocytes again. Both times we delivered 5-6cc of PRP so our total platelet counts were very high…well over 5 million platelets for each end product. As we get more data correlating results to platelet counts or even to LP-PRP with differentials or LR-PRP with differentials….having product quantification will be even more critical.
Make sure your doctor or surgeon is checking the Platelet Rich Plasma on every case!
