Bernard,Took your PRF course.Use single puncture technique. Usually 2 red, 2 white,  27x12. Use Double seed from membranes finely chopped. Add liquid column from white tubes. My bone is usually very consistent from case to case. It definitely can be picked up as a single unit as it retains the shape of the dish it was in. I guess you could call it pliable and maintains shape.I have been reading some of the PRF discussion on here. Can you des...

He flosses every day.    I checked occlusion, although not perfect it is...

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 mai...

Can we spin for 5 minutes, take out 2 tubes, and resume spinning for 7 minutes more for the remaining tubes to make iPRF and PRF to avoid drawing blood twice, or do we need 2 centrifuges to do this???...
