Organ Transport

OPTN policy requires that all OPOs and transplant centers use the external, internal and vessel labels that are distributed by the OPTN contractor when shipping or transporting organs outside the donor hospital.

The OPO committee and living donor committee created color-coded, organ-specific labels to help reduce errors in organ shipment.
