Currently, the gold standard for donor organ preservation in clinical organ transplantation consists of 3 plastic bags and an ice box. The first plastic bag includes the organ itself immersed in preservation solution (e.g. Celsior).

Novel portable hypothermic pulsatile perfusion preservation technology: Improved viability and function of rodent and canine kidneys.
A reliable, portable, cost effective device for perfusion preservation of donor organs remains elusive. A portable, organ perfusion device design for hypothermic, machine perfusion (HMP) that successfully supported rodent kidneys for 24 hours was evaluated in canine kidneys.
Abstract A prototype design of a portable, pulsatile, perfusion preservation device based on a novel application of fluidics technology was tested to evaluate its ability to oxygenate preservation
Cardiac transplantation is limited to an ischemic time of around 6 hours by available preservation solution and technique. Complex organ preservation devices have been developed that extend this time to 24 hours or more, but are clinically impractical. This study evaluates a portable oxygen-driven organ perfusion device weighing approximately 13.5 kg.
