According to The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is “a patient’s own concentrated platelets (that) contain a large number of growth factors.”

Patients with ligament, cartilage, tendon, or bone injuries turn to PRP injections to help reduce pain and stimulate healing in the affected area(s).

Since PRP injections utilize the patient’s own blood, practitioners indicate there is minimal risk to negative reactions or infections.

PRP injections are even used in veterinary practice.

Preparation process

To prepare a PRP injection, blood is drawn from the patient, transferred into a tube, placed in a centrifuge, and then the concentrated platelets are injected back into the patient at the affected site.

While this process is straightforward, it is vital that medical practitioners follow proper transferring and cleaning processes to avoid cross-contamination.

Cleanrooms offer a positive-pressure environment that pull ambient room air through high-efficiency filters and into an enclosed area. The filters capture airborne contaminants. This process helps avoid contaminated air coming into contact with the tools and samples used during injection preparation.

Cleanrooms come in a wide variety of size, installation method, filtration options, and ISO rating; some cost several thousand dollars and require permanent installation.

While these larger systems may work best in research labs and large hospital complexes, the average medical office is usually constrained by space and budget.
