Paragonix Technologies (Braintree, Mass.) said today that its SherpaPak donor-heart transport system has been used successfully at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and other transplant centers around the U.S. and Europe.
The SheraPak combines cooling technology with safe, consistent methods for cold ischemic storage and transport of donor organs, according to the company, which is also developing and commercializing SherpaLung to transport donated lungs to recipients. Real-time reporting of preservation temperature allows for continuous monitoring of transport conditions of the donor heart. When the transport is completed, these data are downloaded to Bluetooth-enabled devices for record-keeping and sharing among the transplant team.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
