Supercool extensions to human liver storage

The scarcity of organs for transplantation could be addressed in part by extending viable preservation time of retrieved organs. Using an ice-free supercooling approach, Uygun and colleagues extend preservation of human livers by 27 hours. The image shows the liver during machine perfusion, when it is preconditioned with protective agents for supercooled storage.
