I was considering the problem with teleporting organic matter, and was curious to know if I can use this to avoid killing anything I teleport?

Electron-positron collisions convert "matter" into "radiation". In fact pretty much any particle-anti-particle collision will do so. The reverse process also occurs, but the probabilities of photon-photon interactions are quite small, so arranging this as a method of tele-portation seems pretty tenuous.
When typical baryons collide with anti-baryons, the possible outcomes are so complex, what with the various quarks and anti-quarks annihilating and rearranging htat the notion of high-fidelity reconstitution occurring seems astronomically improbable. You would almost never have a pure matter to energy conversions.
Not if you believe in baryon and lepton conservation
Another approach is to assume the receiver has a stock of material and all you send is a description of the organic matter-think a 3D printer. The description can be transmitted over any information channel. X-rays would work, though other wavelengths are more convenient. I recently saw a photo of a 3D printed cube frame made of sugar-that is organic matter. Assembling a living organism from atoms is much harder, though.....
