FDA-cleared and CE-marked devices for preservation and transportation of donor hearts, lungs, and livers.
Faster transplantation due to more aggressive organ acceptance.
Real world evidence published in the GUARDIAN registries showcasing positive impact on post-transplant outcomes.
Full transparency and accountability of organ status during transport.
The national organ transplant waitlist is a dynamic list of candidates who have been registered by transplant teams to receive an organ transplant. The system matches potential recipients to an organ after the donation has been determined to meet the necessary criteria. Criteria factors can include organ condition, staff and patient availability, transportation, and distance between the donor and recipient hospitals.
Paragonix devices are intended to mitigate the risks associated with traditional transport methods, and can enable centers to accept donor organs at a more aggressive rate based on surgeon discretion. Paragonix also offers unique procurement services to expand the surgical coverage of transplant centers.
Traditionally, transplant teams have preserved donor organs in commercial-grade ice coolers. This method of unmonitored and uncontrolled cooling may risk freezing injury to the donor organ during transit, causing irreversible cellular damage.
The transplant community offers incredibly robust support dedicated to educating transplant recipients, living donors, and their families. Access public resources online by visiting:
