For the second time, DNA Genotek will be working with Anthony Nolan, the charity which runs the UK’s largest blood stem cell donor registry, to collect saliva samples at the Isle of Wight Festival, June 21-24, 2012. The Isle of Wight Festival is a music festival which takes place every year on the Isle of Wight in England. Many notable artists have performed at the festival including the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, and Coldplay. This year, Bruce Springsteen headlines with an expected attendance of 80,000 people. Our participation in this event supports Anthony Nolan as they strive to increase the number of young men in their registry. The festival attracts participants who meet Anthony Nolan’s donor profile of young men aged 18-30 which provides an excellent opportunity to grow the registry.
