You can easily register as a stem cell donor by filling out our online registration form. You will be asked for personal information and to go through a medical questionnaire to check whether you can become a stem cell donor.
Once you have completed the form you will receive an email with a confirmation link. Clicking on this link will confirm your registration. If you have left details of the use of medication, this will be assessed by a donor doctor after confirmation.
If you are unable to register due to medication use, you will be notified by email. If no medication is entered or if the use of medication is not an objection, you will receive a registration kit at home. You will receive an email when the registration kit is sent.
In the registartion kit you will find three swabs, needed to obtain a bit of your cheek mucosa. These swabs need to be sent back in the added return envelope. You will receive a confirmation by email when the envelope has been received.
The registration kit can be traced back to your personal data only by Matchis, using the barcodenumbers.
Note: As soon as you have obtained your cheek mucoas, it is important that you post the registration set as quickly as possible.
HLA typing, blood type and CMV status are determined on the basis of your cheek mucosa in the laboratory. With this data you will be entered into the worldwide stem cell donor database. From that moment you can be called upon to donate stem cells.
