About the LifePort Kidney Transporter

Created with the challenges of organ recovery and transport in mind, LifePort Kidney Transporter is designed to provide improved kidney preservation, evaluation and transport prior to transplantation.  LifePort provides a sealed, sterile, protected environment where a solution is gently pumped through the kidney at cold temperatures to minimize damage while the organ is outside the body.  LifePort is lightweight and portable, allowing organs to be perfused from the time of recovery until transplant.  It is designed to travel unaccompanied by land or air, safely transporting the kidneys across town or between countries.  While the kidney is being perfused, the LifePort records data on temperature, flow rate vascular resistance and pressure every 10 seconds providing surgeons with additional data prior to transplant.
