Belzer UW® Cold Storage Solution / Belzer MPS® UW Machine Perfusion Solution / EasiSlush® Sodium Chloride Solution for Slush Preparation

Bridge to Life would like to communicate with you how we are ensuring an uninterrupted supply of Belzer UW® Cold Storage Solution, Belzer MPS® UW Machine Perfusion Solution, and the recently released EasiSlush® Sodium Chloride Solution for Slush Preparation in the wake of the COVID-19 disease outbreak.

All Bridge to Life solutions sold in the U.S. are manufactured in the U.S. with some being manufactured at multiple facilities. Our cannulas are manufactured in Canada. We have carefully reviewed our current solutions inventory position and supply chain capabilities and can assure you of the following:

  • Bridge to Life is manufacturing solutions to normal, planned levels and expect no disruption at this time.
  • Our manufacturing facilities have a minimum of a 6-month supply of the ingredients to continue to manufacture solutions at normal production levels.
  • Additional items used in the manufacturing process such as bags and containers, sterile wipes, gloves, gowns and other support material are on-hand at our facilities with an ample supply of least 3-4 months.
  • Our solutions supply chain is strong and is continuing to purchase the necessary ingredients and supplies at normal production levels.
  • Much of our manufacturing process is automated and as such we do not project having any critical personnel staff shortages.

We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation, our customer’s order patterns, our raw material and final goods inventory, and our manufacturing capability and will inform you of any unexpected changes.

Please feel free to reach out to Bridge to Life or your representative with any questions or concerns. If you experience any potential changes in your transplant practice, or if you are planning any changes in your usual solutions ordering pattern, please contact us.

Thank you for your time and the opportunity to be your valued partner.
