The Organ Care System is a medical device designed by Transmedics to allow donor organs to be maintained for longer periods of time prior to transplant. The system dispenses with the traditional method of preserving organs through freezing, replacing it with keeping them in an environment and temperature similar to that of the human body by perfusing the blood of the donor through the organs.
