April 27, 2023
Effective today, the OPTN transport label distributor has changed. Users will need to create a new account when logging onto the new label store for the first time.
What you need to do
The new label store log on links have been updated on the UNOS and OPTN websites. Members can access the label store log on OPTN.gov through a link under Professionals, Resources, Organ transport. Users will be asked to create a new account the first time they log on.
OPTN policy requires that all OPOs and transplant programs use the external, internal and vessel labels that are distributed by the OPTN contractor when shipping or transporting organs outside the donor hospital. OPTN policy requirements for labeling, packaging and shipping organs and extra vessels remain the same. No updates were made to the organ labels and members may continue to use any they have in stock. Labels are available at no cost to members, including shipping.
OPTN printed labels and blank TransNetSM labels are available in the new vendor portal. For a list of TransNet recommended printers and supported equipment, please see the TransNet page on the UNOS website.
