 At a Glance 

On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, TransNetSM users will have the ability to package and label Vascularized Composite Allograft (VCA) organs within the TransNet system. Read policy notice.


The TransNet team will release version 5.6, which allows OPOs to package and label VCA organs with their Android and iOS applications. TransNet will allow up to three VCAs to be packaged together in the same sterile bag or as three separate sterile bags inside the same VCA package. To access the new functionality:

  1. Select the Case Menu in the upper left-hand corner.
  2. Then, select VCA Packaging.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. Scan shipping label 4 to enter the destination of the package with the VCA organs. Once complete, be sure to close and submit the case information to UNOS.

Android users must ensure all cases are closed and uploaded or transferred to another tablet prior to downloading this new TransNet version. All cases currently on the Android device will be deleted upon upgrading to TransNet 5.6 version. Apple users may download the latest version at any time without concern for losing any cases currently on their devices.

Note: The TransNet training site will be updated on October 25.


In advance of the release, UNOS offers a training module on TransNet VCA. Instructional content will cover each section of the VCA page in the TransNet application. Go to UNOS Connect to access the training.
