Non-refrigerating Method to Preserve Bone and Cartilage Graft
Eighty percent of tissue donated for joint repair goes waste and the bone and cartilage grafts harvested from donor tissue don't survive for very long.

Researchers at University of Missouri School of Medicine have developed a new way to preserve such tissue by doubling its lifetime than before. Hopefully, this would lead to a major reduction in the need for such tissue.

Currently, donor tissue is preserved in refrigerators, floating within a special solution that keeps it viable for about a month.

The Missouri Osteochondral Allograft Preservation System (MOPS) uses a new solution and specially designed containers. Another major benefit apart from doubling the lifetime is that it does not require refrigeration.
