Our Premium Horizontal PRF Horizon 6 Flex Centrifuge package, provides you with the latest cutting-edge technology for the PRF protocol at an affordable price. Don't waste your money on overpriced imported centrifuges! Our horizontal centrifuge works in the exact same way as the other brands, except that this centrifuge is manufactured and supported here in the USA! Recent research by Miron et al. and Lourenço ES et al. suggests that horizontal centrifugation for Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) provides benefits over the classical fixed-angle centrifugation. 1,2

The HORIZON 6 Flex routine centrifuge is completely customizable. The fully digital display makes it easy to set cycle parameters on the fly, including variable run time, speed control, and deceleration. Lid lights flash at the end of each cycle and visually indicate the centrifuge’s status (off when ready, on when running, and flashing when done) from across the room, no matter the noise level. Spin 75-100 mm (3-10 mL) tubes right out of the box. HORIZON 6 Flex arrives ready-to-run without the purchase of any additional accessories.

A important note about Horizontal Centrifuges and the difference between a Horizontal and Fixed Angle:
Many people become confused when they see a horizontal centrifuge and notice that at rest the tubes are at angle. However, this is perfectly normal because the tubes are NOT fixed. More specifically, a horizontal centrifuge is what is known as a “swing out” centrifuge. In a horizontal centrifuge, the tubes are at an angle when the machine is at rest. However, unlike a traditional fixed-angle centrifuge, in a horizontal centrifuge the tubes are NOT fixed at an angle. So when the centrifuge is spinning at a high speed the tubes “swing-out” and become perfectly horizontal, as depicted in the photo below.

You can easily see on the horizontal centrifuge that the tubes are not fixed to anything, because at rest you will notice that the tubes can be moved up when you place your hand near the rotor. This ability to move is what causes the “swing out” at high speeds. This is very different than a fixed angle centrifuge, where the tubes are fixed at an angle, and cannot be moved, and will not move at high RPM.

PRF Instruments (Ordered Separately)

If you need PRF instruments for your PRF protocol, you can order these thru any instrument distributor. We do sell the PRF Box, though. Other than the PRF Box,  below are the essential instruments, for the Solid PRF technique.

New! PRF Metal case to hold all you PRF supplies.

PRF Box 

The PRF Box is an extremely important instrument. It helps to: Deliver high quality membranes and constant thickness, and Recover the exudate: hydration of biomaterials.

Preserve the membranes during surgery.

Tube Holder

Is used to hold the tubes and let them rest after the blood drawing.

PRF Mini Tray

Used to prepare membranes, Separate the fibrin clot from the red blood cells - Cut the membranes - Fold the membranes - Make «punches»

PRF Bowl

Is used to mix the membranes cut into small pieces with biomaterials. It can also be used for the cutting: Put the membrane into the bowl and cut it with PRF scissors.

PRF Scissors

Allows to separate easily the fibrin clot from the red cells and to cut membranes into small pieces.

PRF Forceps

Is used to remove and manipulate membranes.

PRF Forceps “Giraffe”

The forceps giraffe is intended to tunneling the PRF membranes for surgical soft tissues procedures: introduce the forceps in the tunnel, open the forceps, block the PRF membranes and pull to place the membranes in the correct position.

PRF Double Spoon

Allows collecting and handling the bone filling materials in the recipient sites (alveoli, sinus, and goshawks implants).

PRF Compactor Big

Allows compacting and tamping the bone filling materials in the recipient sites (alveoli, sinus, and goshawks implants).

PRF Compactor Small

Allows compacting and tamping the bone filling materials in the recipient sites (alveoli, sinus, and goshawks implants).

PRF Pad

Is used to position the PRF membranes easily, anywhere,using the pad as a cake server. The pointed end of the pad can be introduced in the sinus.

The video below shows the use of the our Horizon 6 Flex Horizontal Centrifuge to produce both Liquid PRF and Solid PRF. The liquid PRF is then used to create a sticky collagen plug with our Bioplug Collagen Plugs. [3,4]

(Please note: Horizontal centrifugation is a swing-out mechanism process. This means that tubes are always at an angle at rest. However, when spinning starts, they swing out and spin at a horizontal angle out from the axis of rotation, and spin horizontally. This is as opposed to fixed angle centrifugation, where the tubes are always fixed at angle, even when spinning.
