Transplantation is a Life-Changing Event and Each Patient’s Journey is Unique

The road leading up to transplant can be daunting and full of uncertainty, as can life with a new organ. The aim of this site is to provide prospective and current transplant recipients, their caregivers, and potential living donors access to educational content to support them across each stage of the transplant journey. This includes information about the transplant referral process, organ donation, how to be your best advocate, what to expect at the time of transplant, and life with a new organ.

At One Lambda, the Transplant Diagnostics business of Thermo Fisher, our mission is to improve quality of life for transplant recipients and their caregivers. Supporting the transplant community with high-quality educational materials and resources is a critical component of delivering on this mission.
