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).
