Activated platelet rich plasma (PRP), also known as platelet gel, is an encouraging autologous cell therapy with numerous applications in areas including: wound healing, haemostasis and wound infection control. Activation of PRP using electric pulse stimulation is a promising alternative to activation via biologics such as bovine thrombin. By removing the need for biologics, it is possible to deliver a cost-effective, fast, truly autologous platelet gel option. In this position paper, we… Expand
