Autologous fat grafting is considered to be an ideal filler, as adipose tissues contain an abundant source of regenerative multipotent cells (preadipocytes, mesenchymal stem cells, etc.).
To diminish partial resorption of FAT, A-PRP is mixed with the harvested fat cells.
Large quantities of growth factors (PDGF, TGF, IGF, EGF, VEGF, FGF) involved in stem cell proliferation, differentiation. Fibroblast and endothelial cells contribute to fat graft survival.
RegenKit Extracell Adipocytes is designed to collect, wash and combine the patient’s adipose tissue with their own platelet rich plasma.
RegenKit Extracell Adipocytes - Medical Device Class IIb - CE0086
Intended Use: Preparation of autologous platelet rich plasma (A-PRP) and other plasma-derived product.
In vitro studies have shown that 20% autologous, non-activated, PRP (nPRP) represent a safe, efficient, and cost-effective medium supplement for adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell (AT-MSC) expansion.
Consequently, PRP should be considered as an alternative to fetal bovine serum (FBS) or other non-autologous blood derivatives in cell cultures.1
In vivo studies have shown that FAT & PRP combined diminishes post transplantation fat resorption, optimises fat graft survival, increases cell proliferation, and makes injections easier with less fat nodules.2-5
Therefore, Regen Lab has designed a kit dedicated to the combination of adipose tissue and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): the RegenExtracell® Adipocyte kit.
