Training and demonstration session in Hospital Clínic in Barcelona

Hospital Clínic in Barcelona is one of the participants of our upcoming clinical study on kidney normothermic perfusion. Members of the technical of team of EBERS traveled to Barcelona to train the new users of the device, which included nephrologists, urologists and several other members of the Transplant Coordination Unit of the hospital. The interest of Hospital Clínic in the ARK normothermic perfusion system of EBERS goes beyond the clinical study, as several of their research projects will also benefit from normothermic perfusion.
