Donating blood stem cells may help in giving the victim a new life. If a person is willing to donate blood stem cells, the very first thing is to ensure that the donor is in good health and will not pose any risk of infections to the recipient.
Once the donor is registered with DATRI, your cheek cell sample (buccal swab) is sent for HLA typing. If your sample matches with a recipient, you will be called for the further processes. A small sample is subjected to confirmatory typing which is followed by a Master Health check-up to ensure that you are healthy enough to donate.
