Peli BioThermal, which specialises in temperature-controlled packaging and service solutions for the global life sciences industry, has been encouraging staff to sign up to the charity’s register, which matches blood cancer patients with potential stem cell donors worldwide.
Adam Tetz, Peli BioThermal’s Worldwide Director of Marketing, said:
“We were pleased with the success of the event we staged at our site in Leighton Buzzard, which resulted in 49 members of staff adding their names to the register by taking part in a swabbing event.
“Staff from DKMS were on hand to give help and practical advice on the importance of being on the register, as well as showing how an easy swab of the inside of the cheek can be a lifesaver.”
Reshna Radiven, Head of Communications and Engagement at the charity, said:
“We are delighted to have partnered with Peli BioThermal to register members of the staff team onto the DKMS Donor register. Thanks to the generosity of the team we have another 49 potential lifesavers available to give someone with blood cancer a second chance at life.”
Every 27 seconds someone in the world is diagnosed with a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Peli BioThermal’s products are utilised by a number of organisations operating globally to support in delivering life-saving therapies to blood cancer patients worldwide.
