Note: Increase above baseline is based on a collection volume of 50-60ml (except for the cell saver device at 450ml) whole blood with a single pass.  PRP collection volumes in (ml) vary between the devices listed.  The results above have been obtained from references cited below and in some cases directly from the manufacturer's product literature.  Perfusion.com, Inc. does not warranty the accuracy or validity of the above data, as pricing is subject to change and individual test results may vary significantly.  Clinical decisions to use a product should be based on in-depth research, careful analysis and physician direction.
