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.
