Angel’s “Protocol” tab of the menu screen
Angel procedural customization options:
Adjustable PRP Volume
Adjustable starting blood volume enables you to produce between 1-20ml PRP per cycle to meet different procedural needs.
Using the Standard Dilution Protocol, the Angel System consistently delivers PRP volumes equivalent to 10% starting blood volume (i.e., 4ml PRP from 40cc of whole blood or 12ml PRP from 120cc of whole blood, etc.).
Adjustable Blood Volume
Angel automatically recalibrates centrifugal spin time and speed according to starting blood volumes between 40-180ml.
Adjustable PPP Volume
Angel produces a large volume of PPP containing a low concentration of free hemoglobin.
Adjustable % Hematocrit
The Angel Standard Dilution Protocol specifies a 7% hematocrit setting that can be adjusted up to 25% or down to 0% using the simple touch screen dashboard.
Adjustable Leukocyte Concentration
Using the % Hematocrit setting, the Angel operator has the flexibility to produce PRP with a wide range of percentage of leukocytes.1
Adjustable Platelet Concentration
The unique PRP syringe collection design and 3ST valve switching technology allows the operator to produce a PRP syringe containing concentrated platelets ranging from 1-18x the starting blood sample.2
1. Certain leukocyte populations such as granulocytes have densities that overlap that of red blood cells while others reside in the buffy-coat fraction that floats on the red cell pack.
2. Refer to the Angel PRP Dilution Guide to achieve the desired final platelet concentration. Available on request.
The Cytomedix Angel® Whole Blood Separation System is intended to be used at the patient’s point-of-care for the safe and rapid preparation of platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma from a sample of whole blood. The plasma and concentrated platelets produced can be used for diagnostic tests. The platelet-rich plasma can also be mixed with autograft and/or allograft bone prior to application to an orthopedic site as deemed necessary by the clinical use requirements.
