DKMS needs monetary donations to further expand its database with new donors. Over the years, we at DKMS and our DKMS Life Science Lab have managed to drastically reduce the cost of registering new donors, from DM 600 initially to €35 now. However, we still have to raise the money to cover the costs of registration from donations. Unfortunately, we cannot keep pushing the price down further without compromising our highest standards of quality. Our aim is to continue improving the typing profile of our donors based on the latest research findings. By doing this, we will be able to find the best blood stem cell donors for patients requiring a transplant as fast as possible.
