The LAVA™ family of devices separates and concentrates biologic fluids to create supraphysiologic cell solutions such as Platelet Rich Plasma and Bone Marrow Concentrates.​

LAVA™ cell concentration technology provides the shortest processing times with the smallest and lightest design, consistently delivering high-quality output. High cell concentration and yield with low variability offers more predictable device output​. Lightest weight and most portable device that can be carried where it is needed most, whether in the office, bedside, or in the field.​


Greater than 7X platelet concentration


60 second spin time​


3.2% variance – predictable device output​

Lightest weight and most portable device​:

  • 5 x 5 footprint​
  • Less than 4 lbs, fully loaded​

Fast and easy​:

  • 5 times faster than market leading devices​
  • Simple 3-step process
