Having mastered both disposable and capital equipment sales for companies like C.R. Bard, Tom’s track record of success quickly established Eclipse as the go-to company to launch new technology in the surgical laser industry.

Over time Tom transitioned Eclipse from a leader in the OR surgical laser market to a key player in the aesthetic laser industry. Starting in 2011 Eclipse began a new mission of increasing adoption of Platelet-rich Plasma on a national level.

His vision and leadership has helped Eclipse become one of the most successful medical device companies in its space. Tom’s new mission is to bring game-changing Eclipse technologies in Platelet-Rich Plasma, Microneedling and Shockwave Therapy to the entire globe.

Science

Blood-Derived Growth Factors

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. PRP utilizes a leading-edge, patented technology that is specifically designed. With a simple, quick and advantageous process, your PRP professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.

  • The practitioner draws an amount of blood
  • The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
  • The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and signaling proteins. Platelet-rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood-based biochemistry. All constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin).  Nevertheless, before any treatment, disclose all the medications you are taking (including herbs) to your doctor.

CELL COUNT & GROWTH FACTOR STATISTICS

*STD DEV. Mean concentration using 22 ml tube, removing 6-7ml of platelet poor plasma (PPP) in patients with whole blood platelet counts ranging from 169,000 to 356,000 per microliter.
