Organ Assist Organ Assist



XVIVO Abdominal is a knowledge-based company. It has its origins in the University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands. The company was founded in 2005 by two medical scientists who, after six years of dedicated academic research, had developed and refined a liver perfusion pump. XVIVO combines preservation research with the actual development and optimization of best-in-class life-saving devices in this specialist field.

XVIVO is all about taking knowledge to application level, ensuring better-quality organs and relieving time pressure on the organ transplantation procedure.

More than 10 years of clinical application of our perfusion devices have given us valuable experience and data that supported us to adjust our perfusion setups. We did it in that way that it was most beneficial for the result of transplant. So far more than 2000 clinical procedures of kidney, liver and lungs have been performed after these organs were perfused on one of our devices. With the application of different protocols like hypothermic, normothermic, sub-normothermic and gradual rewarming. A unique feature that no other commercially available and CE marked device is capable of.
