QUALITY & COMPLIANCE ASSURANCE

AV/IT staff monitor the communications equipment before and during the procedure.

Their goal is to make sure transplant centers can see all the data and videos they need.

Quality Assurance staff members make sure that the correct procedures are being followed.

They also verify the clinical data as independent reviewers.

Lung Bioengineering clinical staff are available at all times to triage referrals from transplant centers and carry out EVLP procedures.

Our on-call team is no more than one hour away from their respective facility at any given time.
