Organ Preservation/Transport Containers, Cold Perfusion

Definition : Organ preservation/transport containers designed to be carried by a person (i.e., portable) while providing an oxygenated cold perfusion to the organ. These containers typically consist of a portable unit that includes a cassette that maintains the cold environment and is used for the perfused organ; an ice chamber; a perfusion pump; a bubble detector/protector; a perfusion tubing circuit; a pressure regulator; batteries; and a monitor that may externally display pressure, flow, resistance, and perfusion time. All perfusion components are usually disposable. Portable cold perfusion containers are mainly intended to preserve and transport kidneys while waiting for the transplantation procedure and/or for transportation, but may be also used for other organs such as liver, pancreas, and heart.
