The appearance of blood sampled after gravity fractionation and the resulting P-PRP and L-PRP. In the first low-speed spin, samples were centrifuged for 10 min at 533×g. For P-PRP preparation, the upper plasma fraction, which was 2 mm beyond the interface between plasma and RBC fractions, was transferred into sample tubes for the second high-speed spin (2656×g, 5 min). In contrast, for L-PRP preparation, the upper plasma fraction including the buffy coat and the surface of the RBC fraction was used for the second spin. The supernatant (PPP) was excluded by 50–70%, and platelets were resuspended in the remaining PPP fraction
