Again and again we can read in the press about typing actions for the registration of potential bone marrow donors. These are expensive and have to be paid by the donors themselves. This, however, is not always possible and therefore these actions are dependent on donations. As with many other actions, it is thanks to the commitment of numerous companies that all interested parties were able to be registered in the respective databases. Jäkel, as well, is involved in social projects such as the recent typing action for the 15-year-old Miriam from Marsberg-Essentho who is suffering from Leukaemia.
