PRF Tubes (Box of 24)

SKU: DT-24PRF
$195.00
By T-Lab


T-LAB PRX tubes come in a box of 24 individually wrapped and sterilised tubes, offering you a form of chemical activator free injectable PRF. The inner wall structure of the PRX tube provides excellent smoothness thanks to micro polishing technology. Its smooth structure prevents platelet aggregation and allows you to get I-PRF without using any anticoagulants. It can be injected for up to 16 minutes, and it also offers you an  innovative protocol for clean A-PRF.

Procedure

Apply the following instructions to obtain non-anticoagulated platelet rich plasma by using PRX TUBES:
  • Open the box and package.
  • Apply the blood collection device to sanitized part of the patient’s arm (venous).
  • Attach PRX TUBES to blood collection needle. PRX TUBES is a vacuumed tube. The tube collects enough amount of blood and stops itself.
  • Centrifuge PRX tube(s) immediately in a centrifuging device at 1500 G for 4 minutes. Centrifuge buckets shall be compatible with 16 X 100 mm tubes.
  • Attach a long needle to 5ml Luer-lok Syringe.
  • Collect the PRP/ injectable PRF above the RBC layer by inserting a long needle into PRX TUBES without opening the lid unless performed under laminar flow conditions.
  • Carefully collect 4ml of concentrated plasma layer.
  • Inject the platelet concentrate to the patient as soon as possible.

Required Equipment

  • Blood Collection Needle / Phlebotomy Set / Butterfly Set
    • Phlebotomy set / butterfly set / blood collection needle shall not be thinner than 21G.
  • Centrifuge
    • Swing out rotor centrifuge is recommended to be used.
    • As stated in the How to use section, centrifuge should be set to 1500G and 4 minutes.
    • PRX TUBES has a dimension of 16X100 mm. Centrifuge bucket shall be selected accordingly.
    • Place another tube (blank) of the same weight as PRX tube in the centrifuge to balance.
    • Avoid using unbalanced centrifugal devices.
  • Long Needle and Syringe
    • Long needle shall be 88mm-90mm 18G-19G.
    • Long needle used to collect platelet concentration from the tube, is not intended to be used for the injection procedure.
    • Syringe used to collect the platelet concentration shall have a a minimum capacity of 5ml and be a locked model.

Articles

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF): A second-generation platelet concentrate. Part I: Technological concepts and evolution - David M. Dohan, DDS, MS,a Joseph Choukroun, et al.

"Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) belongs to a new generation of platelet concentrates geared to simplified preparation without biochemical blood handling. In this initial article, we describe the conceptual and technical evolution from fibrin glues to platelet concentrates. This retrospective analysis is necessary for the understanding of fibrin technologies and the evaluation of the biochemical properties of 3 generations of surgical additives, respectively fibrin adhesives, concentrated platelet-rich plasma (cPRP) and PRF."


Injectable platelet rich fibrin (i-PRF): opportunities in regenerative dentistry? - Richard J. Miron, et al

"Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has been utilized in regenerative dentistry as a supra-physiological concentrate of autologous growth factors capable of stimulating tissue regeneration. Despite this, concerns have been expressed regarding the use of anti-coagulants, agents known to inhibit wound healing. In this study, a liquid formulation of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) termed injectable-PRF (i-PRF) without the use of anti-coagulants was investigated."
