The TransNet mobile application automates the organ packaging and labeling process and ensures that donated organs are matched correctly and efficiently with the identified recipient. All OPOs are required to use this application when packaging and labeling deceased donor organs, including VCA organs. You can access the Data Services Portal under UNetSM Resources to find TransNet usage rates, both by OPO and nationwide. We’ll update this information every month.
- Learn how to become a TransNet superuser. Free onsite training, dates TBD.
- We have enhanced the TransNet report available on the Data Services Portal in UNet. This report displays when you did and did not use TransNet for packaging and labeling an organ during the past 12 months.
- TransNet is now compatible with the new iPadOS and Android Pie operating system.
- Read about recent changes to Extra Vessels policy and the impact it will have on your TransNet OPO account.

To access educational material for the mobile application, please check out UNOS Connect, TransNet Step by Step. This offering provides an in depth review of the entire application and is a great resource for new users or as a refresher for experienced users.
“Using TransNet has reduced our lead time for recovery preparation, as staff are able to efficiently print the labels as they are needed. We found the system to be a tremendous improvement in our overall system of packaging and labeling.”

“Our center began using TransNet to ensure that all organs from the outside were being checked in appropriately. Rob and his colleagues were very helpful in guiding me through all of my questions. It is easy to use, reports are easy to find and I have told several of my friends at other centers they should use it.”
