V-PET® makes platelet therapy simple. Blood is drawn and loaded into a bag above the filter. Blood flows through the highly specialised filter under gravity. As platelets reach the filter, they are selectively retained. When the filtration is complete, a harvest solution is backflushed through the filter to recover the platelets. This harvested product is the platelet therapy, and is ready to use. It’s that simple.

V-PET - Just 4 Simple Steps

Since the patient is the donor and recipient, there are no immune reactions to the platelet concentrate.

  • Simple, point-of-use application
  • No centrifuge, power supply or outside lab processing required
  • Single-use, disposable system is cost-effective and efficient
  • Gravity filtration is gentle on platelets, creating a high quality platelet therapy rich in growth factors
  • 6 mL sample volume provides the recommended dose for most treatment regimens
  • Experienced users average 30 minutes per treatment
