Support and Services for Your Transplant Center
Working together to bring cell therapies to more patients
As your partner in delivering cell therapies to patients, we are focused on meeting your needs so you can deliver the right cell therapy to your patients at the right time. That’s why we’ve developed and enhanced programs to remove obstacles so more patients
have access to life-saving cell therapies.
We’re working with you to deliver better information to help you make treatment decisions. To support patients in overcoming non-medical barriers to cell therapy. To lead research, evolve treatments and improve outcomes so patients not only survive …

Access to Cell Therapy
Your patients face many obstacles on their road to receiving transplant or another cellular therapy. Our goal is to partner with you to remove those obstacles—even before referral to your transplant program. Explore how we can work together to overcome the challenges your patients face in accessing treatment.
Through HLA Today, we’re working with you to build connections with community hematologists/oncologists to improve early referral to your center. HLA Today provides a simple way for your referral network to HLA type newly diagnosed patients and their family members and receive critical information early.
Many of your patients and their caregivers may struggle with expenses that could prevent them from moving forward with transplant or accessing needed care or prescriptions after transplant. Our Patient Financial Assistance program can help patients overcome the financial barriers they encounter before and after transplant.
When your patient needs a clinical trial that is not available at your center, our Be The Match® Jason Carter Clinical Trials Search and Support (CTSS) program can help you find an appropriate trial through an easy-to-use web-based search tool. A Clinical Trials Navigator also provides one-on-one support.
Your transplant center has unique needs to get your patients to transplant on time. Through our Local Provider Partnership program, one of our Clinical Operations Partners works onsite with your transplant center team to provide a faster, more accurate response to your needs.

Search and Testing Support
Your patient’s path to transplant—and their outcome—relies on you having access to their best cell source. That could be an unrelated adult donor, cord blood unit, haploidentical donor, fully matched related donor or even a non-transplant cellular
Explore how we can work together to offer the best therapy for your patient, no matter the cell source.
For every search, your transplant team has access to matching tools, support and expert advice from our team—all grounded in research and analytics. When you use our free Search Strategy Advice, our HLA experts provide you with a prioritized list via MatchSource® of your patient’s best potential donor or cord blood unit matches and a recommended action plan.
When your patient needs to get to transplant urgently, you don’t have time to wait for HLA confirmatory typing (CT) results. FastTrackSM Testing provides allele-level HLA typing and detailed testing for patients and donors in three business days or less.
If you don’t use cord blood often in your practice, we have services available to assist you in choosing the best cord blood unit for your patient and caring for your patient pre- and post-transplant. Our Cord Blood Consultation service connects you with an expert cord blood clinician who will call you to discuss your patient’s case and provide guidance.
Together, making the impossible possible
Every day, our Network works together to deliver life-saving cells to your waiting patients. But 2020 was like no other year. See how, together, we overcame incredible obstacles to make sure every patient who started conditioning received their cells.
Workup and Collection
You need a predictable path to transplant once you’ve selected your patient’s cell source. We’re listening to you, enhancing our programs, and putting focused efforts on reducing barriers to collection and improving our ability to meet your requested
timeframe for collection.
Our priority is having the product you request available when you need it for your patient. Explore two programs aimed at delivering high-quality products for your patients on your timeline.
If your patient’s best donor option is a haplo or fully matched related donor, Related Donor Services supports sample collection and HLA typing and related donor workup and collection to help get your patient to transplant in your desired timeframe. You can select and modify individual services to fit the specific needs of your patients, donors and center.
You’ve asked for more certainty that donor collection and cell delivery will happen when you need it. Our Be The Match BioBank allogeneic donor product cryopreservation service allows for the early collection and cryopreservation of an unrelated or related donor’s PBSC or marrow product so a high-quality, characterized product will be available for your patient on your timeline.
