TransMedics® is a medical technology company transforming organ transplant therapy for end-stage organ failure patients across multiple disease states. Our innovative Organ Care System (OCS™) technology replicates many aspects of the organ’s natural living and functioning environment outside of the human body. As such, the OCS represents a paradigm shift that transforms organ preservation for transplantation from a static state to a dynamic environment that enables new capabilities.

The OCS is an organ perfusion, optimization and monitoring system that utilizes proprietary and customized technology to replicate near-physiologic conditions for donor organs outside of the human body. The OCS technology platform is designed to perfuse donor organs with warm, oxygenated, nutrient-enriched blood, while maintaining the organs in a living, functioning state; the lung is breathing, the heart is beating and the liver is producing bile. Because the OCS significantly reduces injurious ischemic time on donor organs as compared to cold storage, and enables the optimization and assessment of donor organs, it has demonstrated improved clinical outcomes relative to cold storage and offers the potential to significantly improve donor organ utilization.

The OCS is a fully integrated, compact and portable organ system with many one-of-a-kind attributes:

  • Only FDA approved commercial device for routine and expanded criteria lungs
  • Only multi-organ platform used with donor lungs, hearts and livers
  • Only system used in DCD heart transplantation outside of the US
  • Largest body of literature and clinical evidence in normothermic perfusion
  • Largest user base at 70 leading global and US transplant centers
  • Most extensive training program including 24/7 clinical support
