Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Normothermic Machine Perfusion (NMP)
Following the routine retrieval procedure of the liver, it will be placed on the OrganOx metra for Normothermic Machine Perfusion (NMP) for transport per the Investigational Plan and the Instructions For Use.
Device: Normothermic Machine Perfusion (NMP)
Other Name: OrganOx metra® device

Standard of Care (Ice)
Following the routine retrieval procedure of the liver, it will be placed in ice-cold perfusion solution within an ice box for transport as dictated by logistics and local policy.
Other: Standard of Care (Ice)
