Conclusive Research. As the term suggests, conclusive research is meant to provide information that is useful in reaching conclusions or decision-making. It tends to be quantitative in nature, that is to say in the form of numbers that can be quantified and summarized.
Moreover, PRP companies are yet to provide quantitative data to prove their claimed platelet concentrate. They use blood films, which is simply a smear sample of blood that's tested on a specially treated slide. A laboratory examines the slide under a microscope and looks at the size, shape, and number of different types of blood cells. It's an estimate and replies on the laboratory practitioner to visually count the cells!
Baseline: WBC to measure the baseline cell count of platelets, RBC and WBC
PRP: Cell count after centrifugation following manufacturer's protocol
i-PRF: Cell count after centrifugation following manufacturer's protocol
i-PRF yields a significantly higher platelet count than PRP.
Three well know PRP kits were tested, the average platelet count is 125 [10^9/L], this is actually lower than the baseline due to the platelets being spun down below the separation gel during centrifugation.
Conclusive scientific data shows i-PRF is the superior autologous therapy, the standardized protocol, higher cell count, biocompatibility and simple preparation method is an exciting development in regenerative medicine and the Smart Cell System is a true game changer.
