Name or Trade Name of The Medical Device
The product is a sterile, single use medical device.
Name and the Address of the Manufacturer
Product Content List
- 1 unit of 10ml PRP SYRINGE
- 1 unit of Luer-cap
- 1 unit of Luer-adaptor
Intended Use of the Product
The device is designed to be used for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient’s point of care. The PRP is prepared prior to application to a local area of soft tissue or hard tissue (including bone) site as deemed necessary by the clinical use requirements. And its intended use is for the application of PRP in order to achieve the stimulation of soft tissue and hard tissue (including bone) and acceleration of soft tissue and hard tissue (including bone) healing.
The Performance of the Device Intended by the Manufacturer
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is used for many years in the frame of regenerative medicine, which allows the cellular healing on bone and soft tissue recovery. Bone and soft tissue healing is occurred by the platelet concentration and re-injection locally to the related part of the body.
Concentration of platelets is very important for PRP treatments. Blood withdrawn from the patient is centrifuged to concentrate the PRP layer. Recommended G force for the concentration is 1500 G for 4 minutes. The blood separation system takes the advantage of centrifugation force effecting on the weight of the cells. The separation occurs during centrifugation when the denser blood components move due to a gravity force.
The PRP SYRINGE shall not be mixed after the centrifugation. 3-4ml of layer is discarded carefully to another syringe until the erythrocytes (Red Blood Cell layer).
The result is a convenient syringe system, collection of the whole blood and concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP SYRINGE reduces the risk of air contamination, eliminates the need of any other tubes or pipettes.
Clinical Safety Information
The safety and efficacy of this device has been proven by Risk Analysis Report and Clinical Evaluation Report, attached to the Technical Construction File of PRP SYRINGE.

This product should be used by physicians or physician-directed allied health care professionals with adequate training in the use of the device.
Apply the following instructions to obtain Platelet Rich Plasma by using PRP SYRINGE.
- Open the box.
- Open the Sterile Blister Packaging.
- Attach a hypodermic needle or butterfly needle to PRP SYRINGE.
- Prepare the patient’s arm in order to draw blood (sanitize the skin).
- Apply the needle to sanitized part of the patient’s arm (venous).
- Prepare balancing weight for centrifugation balance.
- Start drawing the blood until 10ml indicated on the PRP SYRINGE (Phlebotomy).
- De-attach the needle from PRP SYRINGE and use the cap provided in the packaging to close PRP SYRINGE.
- De-attach the plunger as indicated on the body. And immediately move onto the centrifuge process.
- Attach the PRP SYRINGE into the buckets of a swing rotor centrifuging unit as the lid of PRP SYRINGE is on top.
- Adjust the parameters of centrifuging unit as 1500G for 4 minutes. And start the centrifuging process.
- After centrifugation, take the PRP SYRINGE inside from the bucket and do not shake or do not flip PRP SYRINGE upside down.
- Attach the plunger to the piston as indicated on the body.
- Open the lid of PRP SYRINGE. And attach the Luer-connector to the PRP SYRINGE while holding the PRP SYRINGE vertically.
- Attach the Luer-connector to another Luer-tip syringe.
- And press the plunger of PRP SYRINGE in order to transfer the prepared PRP layer from the PRP SYRINGE until reaching up to Red Blood Cell Layer.
- Do not transfer RBC Layer.
- PRP is ready to be injected.
