DONATING TISSUE SAVES LIVES.

Our non-profit organization is dedicated to providing quality tissue through a commitment to excellence in education, research, recovery and care for recipients, donors and their families.

Become an Organ and Tissue Donor

Over 120,000 people need organ transplants and there are hundreds of thousands who would benefit from tissue transplants. Thousands of people die each year before a transplant can be located and many more face long waiting times or less than ideal alternatives for lack of a tissue transplant. Increasing the number of donors will help end needless suffering and will save lives. You can help. MTF Biologics encourages you to learn the facts about donation, to make a personal choice and to discuss it with your family.
