It's not the PRP that needs approval from the FDA, it is the machine or centrifuge that processes the blood that needs approval. The machine has to go through the FDA to get a 510k clearance for the preparation of platelet rich plasma for human use. From their each company has different procedures that they are cleared for (and some they are not).

Platelet-rich plasma - is simply plasma containing platelets. When a person donates blood, it's separated in a laboratory into its components... Red blood cells - which are used to treat anaemia. White blood cells - used to boost a person's immune system. Platelets - used to help stop bleeding. Plasma - used to restore a patient's blood pressure after an accident etc. Plasma will usually contain just small amounts of platelets - unless they've been 'harvested' specifically. Blood donors with naturally-high platelet counts can be asked to donate just platelets (instead of 'whole' blood). Their blood is separated at the time of donation by a small centrifuge by their bed - and the 'unused' components of blood are returned to their body.
