The difference between PRP separating gel and ordinary serum separating gel

Release time:


Clinical biochemistry or medical biochemistry often requires the analysis of body fluids, mainly serum, for diagnostic purposes. In order to adapt to the highly automated detection equipment in the laboratory, the rapid separation of serum is particularly important. The emergence of serum separation gel can realize high-efficiency separation of serum separation gel.

PRP is platelet-rich plasma, which is widely used in medical aesthetics, orthopedics, dentistry, and sports injuries. The separation gel for extracting PRP can also improve the extraction efficiency of PRP. They are all separating gels. Is there a difference between PRP separating gels and ordinary separating gels?

First, let's understand the difference between plasma and serum. Serum and plasma are essentially the same, serum is the liquid that precipitates on the surface of the blood clot after the plasma has coagulated, and plasma is the remaining part of whole blood after the blood cells have been separated and the yellow watery part left after all the blood cells have been removed. Plasma contains various coagulation factors and white blood cells, but serum does not contain coagulation factors, and the density is lower than that of plasma.

It can be seen from the above that there is essentially no difference between PRP and serum, so PRP separation gel and ordinary serum separation gel are basically the same. Both are based on the different sedimentation rates of each component of blood cells. Through centrifugal force, denser blood cells and platelets are accumulated at the bottom of the centrifuge tube, and PRP or serum is presented on the separation gel. The only difference is that because PRP contains various coagulation factors, its specific gravity is larger than that of serum, so the specific gravity of PRP separation gel is larger than that of ordinary serum separation gel. The specific gravity of PRP separation gel is about 1.078, while that of ordinary serum separation gel The specific gravity is between 1.045-1.055.
