Search for donor in DSCD can take place as follows:

  • Through the EMDIS system. DSCD is connected to several registries by EMDIS.
  • By fax: +45 7845 5015
  • By email: skejby.dbmdr@rm.dk

For non-EMDIS searches, we recommend the usage of WMDA forms (see https://www.wmda.info/professionals/optimising-search-match-connect/wmda-forms/), but other forms will be accepted as long as relevant information is provided.

DSCD does not routinely re-run donor searches.


Activation of Danish donors for individual patients

DSCD is connected to several registries by the EMDIS system. Request for Extended Typing (ET), Veryfing Typing (VT), Infectious Disease Marker (IDM) analyses etc. can be received by EMDIS. DSCD also accepts request by fax and e-mail for these services. For non-EMDIS requests, we recommend the usage of WMDA forms (https://www.wmda.info/professionals/optimising-search-match-connect/wmda-forms/), but do accept other forms and free text messages as long as they contain the information needed to perform the request task.


IDM-testing, health screening and ABO-typing is regularly performed at VT-stage as part of the VT service. 

Time limits for reservation of DSCD donor

A donor requested for Extended Typing (ET) is routinely reserved for the specific patient for four weeks from the reporting of the results. After four weeks the donor will be released without further notification to the requesting center. The reservation may be prolonged if requested by the requesting center and accepted by DSCD. 


A donor requested for Verification Typing (VT) is reserved for the specific patient for 3 months after sample shipment. After 3 months a form asking if the donor can be released will be sent to the requesting center. The reservation may be prolonged if requested by the requesting center and accepted by DSCD.

 

Request for donor work-up

A request for donor work-up can be forwarded to DSCD by fax or e-mail. For this purpose, it is strongly recommended to use the WMDA forms for donor work-up request (https://www.wmda.info/professionals/optimising-search-match-connect/wmda-forms/), but other forms will be accepted as long as relevant information is provided.
