- Cascade/MTF system (human product equivalent of ProTec PRP for veterinary use) was evaluated following 9cc blood draw
- 2cc each of PRFM samples were evaluated for growth factor level and time-course of release
Conclusion: Results demonstrate that platelets remain functionally viable throughout the cascade process and suggest a continual release out to 7 days. Implied benefit is that a gradual release is more consistent with the healing process.
