Our innovative device enriches macronutriental content of human milk onsite
The problem we solve
During the first months of life, a lack of macro-and micronutrients in preterm infant's diet causes growth delay (1). Human milk is the best nutrition for any neonate but for preterm neonates it can not cover their special daily needs in extra protein content. Nowadays to solve this problem the proteins of non-human origin (cow's milk proteins) are added into human milk to increase its protein value. Such fortified milk allows the child to get the necessary amount of nutrients, but this practice also carries a potential risk of side effects due to the non-human origin of the proteins (2). Additionally it prevents to keep 100% human milk-based diet, which is recommended by WHO to any neonate during first six months of live (3). The only way to solve this problem is to add to the human milk the human-milk origin proteins. With our novel device we hope we can provide an innovative solution for this well-known problem.

What is Babylat?
Babylat is the first automated tabletop device for human milk protein enrichment. It is easy to use even without special medical training because all enrichment processes are automated and do not require additional laboratory equipment. After extraction, the enriched protein fraction is added to human milk to increase its protein value without cow milk products. Babylat is a unique solution to help to feed the preterm neonates by most efficient way with own's mother milk or donor milk cause it allows to prepare human milk-origin fortifiers onsite
