No one can ever deny the importance of the human milk banks. A service which collects, screens, processes, and dispenses by prescription, human milk donated by nursing mothers who are not biologically related to the recipient infant.
With the optimum nutrition for new-born infants being breast milk, for the first year, human milk banks offer a solution to the mothers that cannot supply their own breast milk to their child.
Can you imagine our excitement here at BMi when we got the opportunity to work with the global market leader of pasteurisation equipment for donor human milk? They have over 250 pasteurizers running in over 35 different countries.
In addition, they are the main global supplier of a complete feeding system for the mother via the global milk banks. Supplying consumables like the bottle / teats / hermetic seals as well as the processing equipment such as hand-held induction sealing equipment.
Suppliers to milk banks around the world, Sterifeed which is part of the Medicare Colgate group is a research and development based company which strives for continuous improvement using innovative technology for equipment and the latest materials and designs for consumables.
This is where the collaboration with CAPSolutions became key and very timely, for every hand held induction machine that was supplied to the milk banks around the world a HANDMASTER™ was made available to ensure induction seal quality.
Guaranteeing that the seal was perfect prior to pasteurisation was of paramount importance to prevent water ingress during the process. We can all rest assured that more and more of the donated milk is now reaching premature babies in perfect condition due to Sterifeed system approach and the HANDMASTER™ quality assurance equipment.
