OrganOx is delighted to announce that the metra has been selected as a finalist for the 2019 MacRobert Award, the most prestigious prize for UK engineering innovation.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the MacRobert Award is run by the Royal Academy of Engineering and recognises engineering teams that demonstrate outstanding innovation, tangible societal benefit and proven commercial success within the UK engineering sector
MacRobert Award judge, Professor David Delpy CBE FREng FRS FMedSci, commented on OrganOx:
"This is a very impressive piece of complete systems engineering. It involves almost all engineering disciplines, clinical research and the development of new regulatory approvals for what is possibly the most complex bioengineering system on the market. Apart from the obvious and immediate benefit for all transplant patients, the long-lasting benefit of this development will be a total change in the way we manage transplant surgery and treat, regenerate and recreate organs that are supported outside the body."
