The Power of Platelets
Platelets and other components in the human blood migrate to a site of injury.
Platelets are known to release a variety of growth factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets at the site of injury, physicians have the potential to enhance the body's natural capacity for healing.
As part of the body's capacity to heal itself, platelets and other components in the human body migrate to a site of injury. Platelets are known to release a variety of factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets at the site of the injury, physicians have the potential to enhance the body's natural capacity for healing.
The SELPHYL System provides the exact amount of Calcium Chloride to PRP producing Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix. Other systems produce PRP, not PRFM. Fibrin matrix creates a scaffold to localize platelets to the site of injection and allows for sustained growth factor release, migration of stem cells, and reservoir for regenerative signaling.

The SELPHYL PROCESS
During a short office visit (20 minutes) a small amount of a patient's own blood is drawn into a vacuum collection tube containing a cell separator gel.
The tube is then placed into a centrifuge and spun for six minutes to separate the blood into a supernatant plasma/platelet suspension.
The red and white blood cells are located below the cell separator gel.
The platelets and plasma are then transferred in a closed system to a second vacuum tube containing a small amount of calcium chloride solution.
Fibrin polymerization begins and the PRP remains liquid for approximately 20 minutes before PRFM.
The patient's own PRFM is ready for use a deemed appropriate by the clinical use requirements.
