About LifePort Kidney Transporter

Created with the challenges of organ recovery and transport in mind, LifePort Kidney Transporter is a proprietary medical device designed to provide improved kidney preservation, evaluation and transport prior to transplantation. Today, it is widely recognised as the world's leading machine preservation device for kidneys. Employed by surgeons in over 135 leading transplant programmes in 23 countries worldwide, LifePorts have successfully preserved over 38,000 kidneys intended for clinical transplant. The product provides a sealed, sterile, protected environment where a solution is gently pumped through the kidney at cold temperatures to minimise 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, LifePort records data on temperature, flow rate, vascular resistance and pressure every 10 seconds providing surgeons with additional data prior to transplant. LifePort is the only system with clinical outcomes data produced from an independent, prospective, randomised, statistically powered, multi-centre clinical trial. Study results have been widely published in scientific journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine. Data indicates that patients receiving LifePort preserved kidneys experienced significant reduction in the incidence and duration of delayed graft function and increased graft survival at 1-year and 3-years post-transplant. LifePort has also been recognised for its design and engineering. It has received prominent awards for design excellence from the medical device industry, has been selected for exhibition at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum and is part of the permanent Collection of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.
