EBERS successfully overcomes Phase II of a pre-commercial procurement contract for the development of innovative solutions in the field of organ preservation

EBERS received on the 27th of January the outcome of the evaluation of Phase 2 of the Pre-Commercial Procurement Contract for the Development of Innovative Solutions in the Field of Organ Preservation, signed with the Spanish Center for the Technological Development and Innovation (CDTI). The goal of this contract is the design and development of an ex vivo preservation system for solid organs beyond the state of the start, which can contribute to expand the organ donor pool for transplantation and reduce costs of healthcare systems. The works are being executed by EBERS in collaboration with Moses Products, a company specialized in plastic transformation, and Intraven, an SME specialized in the assembly, packaging and sterilization of medical devices.

Phase 2 of the project was devoted to the development of the prototype and the execution of a set of pilot tests. The works in this phase have lasted since the 1st of October of 2021 until the 31st of December of 2022 and have included the fabrication of a prototype of a new normothermic perfusion machine meeting the requirements of the contract and the execution of animal and non-animal tests with it. The evaluation of Phase 2 has been satisfactory and successful, meaning that the project passes to Phase 3, where the prototype will be validated in a pre-operational environment at the facilities of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Centre “Jesús Usón” in Cáceres, Spain.
