Patient safety is the driving force behind all that we do. No organ should be lost as a result of a packaging error.

TransNet automates packaging and labeling organs. Automating this process greatly reduces the chances of transcription errors or mistakes due to illegible handwriting and helps us ensure that donated organs are matched correctly and efficiently with the identified recipient. UNOS began a voluntary national deployment of the TransNet service in March 2015.
