Summary:  This study evaluated key parameters of the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) product from five commercial canine PRP systems in healthy adult canines. The mean baseline whole blood platelet, RBC, WBC, neutrophil, monocyte, and lymphocyte concentration were determined for each PRP system. The mean PRP product platelet, RBC, WBC, neutrophil, monocyte and lymphocyte concentrations were determined for each PRP systems. Results indicate that each system produces a different final PRP product with a single system providing both a high concentration of platelets and reduced concentration of neutrophils and RBCs.

Key words:  platelet-rich plasma, autologous conditioned plasma, leukocyte-rich platelet-rich plasma, platelet count
