A human organ is stored, between removal from one body and implantation in another, in an apparatus mounted on a wheeled cart. The apparatus has a pulsatile pump for pumping plasma, a heat exchanger connected to the outlet of the pump for cooling the plasma to about 4.degree. to 8.degree. C., and a perfusion chamber to which the cooled plasma is supplied. The perfusion chamber includes a support for the organ and means for connecting the organ to the pulsing flow of cold plasma. Venous effluent from the organ is collected and conducted by gravity to a membrane oxygenator, which returns oxygenated plasma to the pulsatile pump for recirculation through the organ.
