Organ Assist Organ Assist

Technology

The proprietary technology behind all our devices is mainly the same. All our perfusion machines consist of at least one (or more) pump unit(s), for most devices a Thermo unit and a work bench/trolley. The main difference is that every device is designed for a specific organ type.

Oxygen: the game changer!

All our devices allow for oxygenated perfusion. Research has indicated that the addition of oxygen to the perfusion fluid has positive effects on the organ(s) as well as the transplant results.

Organ specific settings: pressure controlled

Every system has dedicated preset perfusion pressures, which are depending on the perfusion temperature and the type of organ.

Proven pump design: true pulsatile flow

The proven pump design allows for true pulsatile flow, independent of the perfusion pressure.

Common user interface: easy to learn and implement

The user interface of our devices is the same, which makes it easy to implement and extend our technology in your department.

Industry unique: adjustable perfusion temperature

The Thermo unit gives you the choice of setting your prefered temperature environment for the organ. This provides you an industry unique opportunity of perfusing in between hypothermic and normothermic temperatures. You can even choose to slowly warm (or cool) the organ(s) during the procedure.

 

Clinical Trials

The following clinical trials are ongoing using Organ Assist technology:

Kidney

COPE:

  • POMP trial: oxygenated hypothermic kidney re-conditioning after cold storage
  • COMPARE trial: oxygenated vs. non oxygenated hypothermic machine perfusion in kidney transplantation. UPDATE April 2017: inclusion finished!
