Recently Published Study Shows the Companion Regenerative Therapies (CRT) System as the Top Performing Commercially Available Platelet Rich Plasma Isolation System

NEWARK, DE – February 1, 2016 –  Frontiers in Veterinary Science recently published the results of a multicenter prospective study which investigated the performance of five commercially available Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) isolation systems.

Study Summary:
Blood samples were obtained from 10 healthy dogs for each system and were processed according to the manufacturer’s protocols. The performance of each system was analyzed based on pre and post processing concentrations of platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, neutrophils, monocytes, and lymphocytes. Each of these parameters were evaluated for changes over baseline values and statistical significance. At the conclusion of the study, one system was identified as the top performing PRP isolation system which was determined to be a system that effectively increased platelet concentration while significantly reducing damaging cell types (red blood cells and neutrophils). The top performing system in this study was the Companion Regenerative Therapies (CRT) System.
