Nowadays, there is not a specific container to transport tissues or organs. This element has a lot of importance, since it protects the organs and it preserves them in a perfect state, preventing its rejection once the transplant is executed. The main requirements to be accomplished for the design of this element are the following ones:
- The organ’s container has to maintain confidentiality and at the same time the label has to contain the necessary information: recovery date, ABO, all serology results, container contents, and the donor ID. The label should clearly state: “for use in organ transplantation only”.
- The container has to guarantee the organ’s integrity.
- The container must be able to maintain the temperature at the specified range and in extreme outside temperature conditions.
