Search and Transplant Services

Our Search & Transplant Services team (STS) facilitates the patient’s transplant journey from initial search to delivering the life-saving stem cell product. On a day-to-day basis, STS receives incoming search requests from our local transplant centre and Malaysia hospitals to identify potentially matching donors from our register and global database for the patients and recommending 6 best matches to the patient’s transplant physician. As a member of the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) global network, STS also receives international search request from registries around the world to identify potentially matching local donor for patients overseas, from as far as US, Australia and Europe. The transplant physician makes the final choice of donor and request for donor’s verification typing (VT) to confirm and ensure that the selected donor is in fact the best match for the patient. The next step is procurement where the VT’ed donor undergo a series of physical examination to ensure that they are eligible to donate before collection of stem cells for patient’s transplant. Once the stem cell has been collected, STS works around the clock to monitor the transport of the product closely until it is delivered to the transplant centre safely.
