The Only Fully Integrated, Compact, Portable Organ Preservation System
The TransMedics Organ Care System (OCS) is a fully portable, multi-organ, normothermic preservation and assessment technology that mirrors human physiology, minimizes ischemia, and provides the ability to optimize the organ during transport.
This revolutionary technology allows physicians and institutions to maximize the potential of donor hearts, lungs, and livers while monitoring each organ throughout the entire process, ensuring transplant teams can preserve organs in an optimal condition.
The OCS Platform Was Designed To:
MIMIC THE HUMAN BODY
Warm, oxygenated blood perfusion allows us to maintain organs in a living, functional state. As a result, the lung breathes, the heart beats, and the liver produces bile.
Enable Diagnostic Evaluation
Diagnostic assessment makes it possible to analyze organ function and viability.
Optimize Organ Condition
Allows for therapeutic intervention through replenishing oxygen and nutrients.

Addressing Current Limitations of Organ Transplant
only 2-3 out of 10 donated thoracic organs are able to be used for transplant
Cold storage can limit the utilization of donor organs and negatively impact outcomes. By keeping organs in a warm, functioning state, OCS enables physicians to care for and optimize the condition of donor organs.
With the optimization of donor organs and assessment of organ viability through the OCS, more organs can be utilized, providing transplant patients with better outcomes.
