Instructions For Converting RCF (G-Force) to RPM:
- Measure the spin radius by holding a ruler parallel to the counter top and measuring the horizontal distance from center of rotation — usually a bolt in the middle of the rotor — to the far tip of a bucket
- Enter this in the “Rotor Radius” field
- Enter the desired RCF (aka G-Forces)
- Hit “Calculate RPM”
- Read the number that appears in the “RPM” box and use this setting on your centrifuge
Centrifuges are dirty and there is no way to sterilize them. But did you know that most centrifuge buckets can be autoclaved? If you are particular about sterility (and we know you are), consider sterilizing your buckets prior to each PRP process. Please remember to ensure with the centrifuge manufacturer that your bucket is autoclavable.
If your centrifuge has a brake, have it turned as low as possible —an aggressive brake WILL disrupt the PRP.

FAQ What if I am not familiar with PRF?
- Enso Discoveries has detailed instructional videos available
- Enso Discoveries offers wet labs, video conferencing, or personal visits
Is it expensive to get started?
- No capital investment typically required
- If you need a centrifuge, ours is only $349.00 (mobile 12v or 120v available)
- Each Rebound PRF kit is just $95.00, including all supplies needed to perform procedure
How can you offer so much for so little? Can I trust the quality?
YES! Because we design, university-validate, and manufacture our own products, there are no large fees being paid to human-focused companies for veterinary rights.
