    ABOUT US:

    TransMedics, Inc., headquartered in Andover, MA, is revolutionizing organ care. With the goal of bringing new life to organ transplant, the pioneering Organ Care System (OCS™) was developed to address the major limitations of the current standard of care, cold storage. The OCS System serves as a portable, miniature intensive care unit that helps preserve donor organs in a near-physiologic state during transport. Unlike traditional cold-storage methods, the OCS System features ex-vivo, warm perfusion, and provides the means to monitor organ health, so that transplant patients can experience better outcomes.
