How to register
It will take 30-45 days to type the HLA. This report will be stored in our registry. Please note, this is only the registration step. Donation may happen anytime between 3 months from the time you register until you turn 60 years or never.
What is HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen)?
Just like it is important to know the blood group or blood type (ABO) while donating blood, it is necessary to know one’s HLA type or the genetic code to match with a patient in need. Only if the HLA type of a potential donor matches closely with that of the patient, one can donate blood stem cells.
