Lab Processing

Regenexx procedures use advanced, proprietary lab-processing techniques to ensure that we have the right concentrations of the right cells to treat your specific injury.

As more and more medical practitioners ranging from chiropractors to orthopedic surgeons begin to offer stem-cell therapies and other regenerative treatments for orthopedic injuries, it’s important to realize that not all of these treatments are equal. Most of these operations use one-size-fits-all bedside centrifuges to process all samples. These centrifuges treat all samples the same and as a result often produce suboptimal results in every case. For example, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) processed by bedside centrifuges is reddish in color and still contains some red blood cells which cause significant irritation and inflammation when injected into an injury. Regenexx-processed PRP is amber in color and contains only a very small amount of red and white blood cells. In the same way, our same day bone marrow procedure produces many times the number of stem cells per unit volume injected when compared to the basic machines doctor's commonly use to process marrow. 

Regenexx locations all have a specialized orthobiologics laboratory on-site where a trained laboratory technician uses proprietary techniques to custom-process every sample. We call this a "Flexible Lab Platform".
