The purpose with surface MD is to monitor the new organ after an organ transplantation. The system is based on a new technique that makes it possible to pick up reliable samples from the surface of this organ. This minimizes the risks of infections. The patient is always connected to the system and an online monitoring technique is used to update/display all the values instantly. With the possibility to disconnect the analyzer the patient can use the bathroom/shower, move around and exercise more freely with only the pump attached to his clothes. The pump keeps collecting samples that later can be analyzed if needed.
