Discover the Preemie sensor and our portfolio of applications

The Preemie ecosystem is composed of the Preemie sensor, supported by an Artificial Intelligence computation engine working in the cloud, and a portfolio of four desktop and mobile applications directed to Neonatal Intensive Care Units and Human Milk Banks.

Below please find the Preemie products and accessories we are selling. Please note that these products are only available officially in the spring of 2021, but if you wish to have any of the products below for experimental research we are able to deliver earlier and at a discounted price. Just send us an online request and we will be pleased to answer any questions and give you a quote.

The Preemie Ecosystem

1. Preemie Sensor

This sensor is a spectrometer calibrated with human milk and designed to analyse the milk for nutritional value, spoilage, and safety, as well as to suggest individual targeted fortification for each infant. This sensor requires either an Android or an iOS device (tablet or smartphone) to be used as the interface between the sensor and the AI-cloud engine that performs the milk analysis.

  • Unit size: 48x73x125 mm
  • Transmissive near-infrared spectroscopy;
  • Spectral range: 1350 to 2150nm;
  • Battery powered;
  • Bluetooth connectivity to enable communication with portable devices;
  • Micro-USB connection is used for charging;
  • Works with the Preemie Fortification and the Preemie Milk Quality softwares.

This Package Includes:

  • Preemie sensor
  • One quartz cuvette and holder
  • Micro-USB cable

The Preemie sensor will be launched in the spring of 2021.

2. Preemie Fortification software (NICU)

This software app is designed to only work with the Preemie sensor and to be used to test milk composition at the NICU.

  • Designed to meet the needs of Neonatal Intensive Care Units for targeted fortification;
  • Analysis of the composition of human milk for nutrition, freshness, and safety;
  • Parameters measured: Total Protein, Total Lipids, Lactose, Total HMOs, Energy, Freshness, Somatic Cell Count;
  • Automatic calculation of the suggested fortification;
  • Customization of fortification guidelines and fortifiers used;
  • Storage of relevant data about infant nutrition and growth in compliance with GDPR;
  • Produces, exports, and saves reports.

Parameters that the Preemie sensor displays in the Fortification software:

TOTAL PROTEIN

grams/100 mL

The content of actual protein is a key value for targeted milk fortification since it is the one contributing the most to the infant’s growth.

TOTAL LIPIDS

grams/100 mL

Fat is crucial for the development of the infant’s neurological system.

TOTAL CARBS

grams/100 mL

Carbohydrates — the sum of lactose and HMO — are crucial for energy intake and thus infant growth, but are also important to protect babies against pathogens and diseases.

LACTOSE

grams/100 mL

Lactose is the main sugar in milk, and provides most of the energy needed by the growing infant. It is a part of the total carbohydrates and is the nutritionally relevant sugar.

TOTAL HMOs

grams/100 mL

Oligosaccharides are unique to human milk. They are not digestible by the infant, but rather serve to feed the gut microbiome, which has many nutritional and health benefits.

ENERGY

kcal/100 mL

Caloric intake is key for the development of the baby and is calculated from the content of various components.

SOMATIC CELL COUNT

Low/High count

Milk contains somatic cells that are 75% leukocytes and 25% epithelial cells.
Elevated levels of somatic cells in milk can be used to study breast health and prevent possible mastitis.

FRESHNESS

Fresh/Spoiled

As milk ages it becomes less safe. How quickly it loses freshness depends on its temperature and handling. The effective age is correlated to total aerobic bacteria and determines the acceptability of the milk.

The Preemie Fortification software will be launched in the spring of 2021.

Preemie Nutritional Tracker Application

3. Preemie Feeding Tracker software (NICU)

This software is designed to work with or without the Preemie sensor and to be used to track the infant’s nutritional intake and correlate it with the infant’s growth at the NICU.

  • Designed for Neonatal Intensive Care Units;
  • Stand-alone desktop software (does not require the use of the Preemie sensor);
  • Comprehensive management of the infant’s nutritional intake overtime;
  • Correlation of the infant’s nutritional intake with growth indicators such as weight, length, and head circumference;
  • Allows digital prescription of fortification on a daily basis;
  • Customization of fortification guidelines and of fortifiers used;
  • Personalized introduction to fortification;
  • Also works with Fortification app to enable personalized and tracked nutritional intake;
  • Produces, exports, and saves reports;
  • Key insights based on metadata.

The Preemie Nutrition Tracker software software will be launched in the spring of 2021.

Preemie Milk Quality Application

4. Preemie Milk Quality software (HMB)

This software app is designed to only work with the Preemie sensor and to be used to test milk composition, freshness, and safety at the HMB.

  • Designed for Human Milk Banks;
  • This software works with the Preemie sensor;
  • Analysis of the composition of human milk for nutrition, freshness, and safety;
  • Parameters measured: Total Protein, Total Lipids, Lactose, Total HMOs, Energy, Freshness, Somatic Cell Count;
  • Storage of relevant data about donor milk in compliance with GDPR;
  • Produces, exports, and saves reports.

The Preemie Milk Quality software will be launched in the spring of 2021.

Desktop Milk Tracker for HMBs

5. Preemie Milk Tracker software (HMB)

This software is designed to work with or without the Preemie sensor and to be used to manage the donor milk at the HMB.

  • Designed for Human Milk Banks;
  • Stand-alone desktop software (does not require the use of the Preemie sensor);
  • Comprehensive management of the donor milk received;
  • Stores key data about the donor milk encompassing all the key steps, from reception to storage, up to processing and delivery;
  • Suggestion of the best donor milk to be pooled in order to achieve the highest milk quality;
  • Generation of nutritional labels for each donor and pooled milk bag;
  • Also works with Milk Quality app.

The Preemie Milk Tracker software will be launched in the spring of 2021.
