TransMedics, Inc.

Headquartered in Andover, Massachusetts, TransMedics is a privately held medical device company founded in 1998 to address the unmet need for better, more effective organ transplant technologies. The Company has developed the first and only system that allows a new type of organ transplant, called a living organ transplant.

This breakthrough, investigational technology, called an Organ Care System, is designed to maintain organs in a warm functioning state outside of the body during transport from organ donor to recipient. The goal of TransMedics' technology is to improve outcomes and increase organ availability for the growing population of patients with end-stage organ failure in need of a transplant, reduce recovery time, hospital stays and reliance on ongoing medical therapies, and ultimately bridge the ever-widening gap between the number of organs approved for donation and the number of recipients awaiting transplants.
