Why does registering cost money?
DKMS is a charity and relies on monetary donations to cover donor recruitment costs. The cost of the registration for one potential donor is £40.
Tissue typing is the determination of your tissue characteristics from your swab through analysis by a laboratory. We have to fund all registration costs entirely through voluntary monetary donations. This is why we are grateful to those who are able to support us by making a monetary donation to cover the cost of their own registration, and also for those who contribute towards this cost.
