Long-term survival of kidney grafts is not improving despite better donor management and improved immunosuppression. The number of people needing dialysis for end-stage renal failure is likely to double in the next 10 years. Finding a way to bridge the gap between demand and supply of organs is vital. With its innovative technology, LifePort Kidney Transporter has revolutionized kidney preservation. Compelling evidence shows that LifePort Kidney Transporter can improve the odds of a good outcome.

LifePort Kidney Transporter 1.0
The protective mechanisms for liver preservation associated with hypothermic machine perfusion HMP remain unclear. An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to calculate the portal inflow according to the association with weight, density and volume of the perfusate. A total of 10 rat livers underwent 6 h of HMP using histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate solution enriched with acridine orange AO and propidium iodide PI. The dynamics inflow, pressure and intrahepatic resistance of perfusion were assessed to identify whether this system met the demands for HMP of rat livers.
LifePort Kidney Transporter
A new standard in organ transport systems delivers kidneys in improved condition. With approximately 55, Americans waiting to receive kidneys and a list that could double in the next 10 years, there is an acute and urgent need for new technology to increase the quality and number of organs available for transplant. Using the conventional method of organ storage and transportation—a cooler filled with ice—doctors and nurses needed to accompany the organ to ensure proper handling. The LifePort gently perfuses, or pumps, the kidney with a cold liquid solution to improve its condition before transplantation, which can nearly double storage time and may increase the number of usable kidneys and improve patient outcomes. The device also provides critical data to monitor and evaluate kidneys during transport. In , the LifePort Kidney Transporter was used to transport kidneys per month in 12 countries, and was included in the permanent architecture and design collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
