Headquartered in Andover, Massachusetts, TransMedics™ is a medical device company founded in 1998 to address the unmet need for better, more effective organ transplant technologies. The Company has developed the first commercial, portable warm blood perfusion system that allows for a new type of organ transplant, called a living organ transplant. This technology, called an Organ Care System, or OCS, is designed to maintain organs in a warm, functioning state outside of the body during transport from organ donor to recipient.
TransMedics’ mission is to enable more patients with end stage organ failure to benefit from the accepted medical standard of care — organ transplantation. TransMedics' Organ Care System is designed to deliver the healthiest organ, thereby potentially increasing the number of available organs, improving patient outcomes, and reducing recovery time, hospital stays and reliance on ongoing medical therapies.
