In prin­ci­ple, anyo­ne aged bet­ween 18 and 55 years can regis­ter as a vol­un­t­a­ry stem cell donor.
To beco­me a stem cell donor, you can regis­ter eit­her by atten­ding a typ­ing cam­paign or by
reques­t­ing a regis­tra­ti­on kit from a donor cen­ter of your choice. The kit will be sent out by
post and con­ta­ins all the neces­sa­ry papers, a con­sent form, and two cot­ton swabs. Each of
the­se is used to take a cheek swab from the lining of the mouth. The samples are then returned
to the donor cen­ter with the signed con­sent form. Your data will be saved and pseudonymized
at the donor cen­ter, then for­ward­ed to the ZKRD. Regis­tra­ti­on is then com­ple­te, and you will
be available as a poten­ti­al donor to pati­ents worldwide.
