The HLA Registry at Community Blood Services


Every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.

About Us

From its inception, the mission of The HLA Registry has been to help patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, and other potentially fatal blood diseases in their searches to find unrelated, compatible donors for lifesaving bone marrow stem cell transplants. Thanks to the combined efforts of The HLA Registry and many caring people, the donor center is responsible for registering more than 230,000 potential donors in its data base and facilitating more than 1,500 bone marrow and stem cell transplant.

Our Mission is to help miracles happen.

The HLA Registry is one of the largest non-governmentally operated donor center in the United States as well as the only donor center based in New Jersey. It is a member of the National Marrow Donor Program’s (NMDP’s) Be The Match Registry. The NMDP is a network of donor centers and hospitals, both domestic and international, which help patients in need of transplants.

The HLA Registry actively recruits donors from all over the United States and, in particular, from the northeastern region of the country. Donors with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds are especially needed. All donors recruited through The HLA Registry automatically become part of the Be The Match Registry’s data base which can be accessed by doctors and patients in need worldwide.

Once the member is matched to a patient, the caring and knowledgeable staff at The HLA registry guide the donor through the next steps toward their generous, lifesaving donation.
