[Others]  L-PRF, A-PRF, CGF, and centrifuges

I should start by saying that I have not yet taken any PRF courses (but I plan on doing so in the near future). But first, could someone explain to me what are the main differences between: L-PRF and A-PRF and CGF?


From what I have read online, all three are membrane types but use different centrifuges, L-PRF with the Hettich EB200, A-PRF with Choukroun's Duo Centrifuge, and CGF with Medifuge.


Can someone explain briefly the main difference between L-PRF, A-PRF, and CGF? Which is better?

Hello M**** Good question. Unfortunately, your question is similar to asking "Korean food, Italian food, Japanese food? Which tastes better?" My answer... Dr. Joseph Choukroun was the first to pioneer and present the L-PRF to the healthcare community. I learned it from him directly. In addition, I have tweaked the procedure to meet needs that we encounter in the dental implant, oral surgery, perio surgery world in GP practice. I have worked hard to ensure it is a practical tool in our doctors' hands. Soon after Choukroun started teaching his technique, many other individuals started coming up with their own versions of the PRF citing that theirs was the best. The concept is the same throughout. Choukroun has himself changed the settings/protocols - citing that more BMPs are gathered through his newer A-PRF technique. At the end of the day - I believe you should look at how the topic is presented and applied by the instructors/mentors. I believe our record and testimonials speak for themselves. Simply ask any of our doctors who've taken our PRF course. :)
