Transmedics – organ transplant transport device
As you may have seen on medical shows, most transplant organs are transfered via cold storage (glorified ice chest). Although better than other transportation methods, cold ischemic storage is still prone to causing damage to the organs. Thanks to Transmedics, damaged organs may be a thing of the past.
Live organs are transported in a container that pumps warm, oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood through the organ. The device will even be able to test the organ for function and tissue matching!
Take that coolers.
