Below please find the Preemie products and accessories we are selling. Please note that Preemie Sensor has not yet received the IVD medical certification, however it can be sold for research purposes only. Just send us an online request and we will be pleased to answer any questions and give you a quote.
Preemie Sensor is an NIR-spectrometer calibrated with human milk and designed to analyse the milk for its nutritional value (Total Fat, Total Protein, and Total Energy).
Preemie Sensor “for research purposes only” is currently available for sale, this sensor is not sold with human milk calibrations. We expect to have a medical IVD approval for the EU and the USA by late 2024, at that stage you will be able to order Preemie Sensor, calibrated with human milk and for medical use.
For Research Purposes

This Package Includes:
The NurvetteTM – is a special demountable patented cuvette that simplifies the process of scanning and ensures that the operator handles the cuvette and sample carefully, reducing the risks of breaking the cuvette glass, dropping the sample, and the risk of forming bubbles in the sample. The actual inside of this cuvette, consisting of two removable quartz “slides”. One is plain (except for a ‘UV’ inscription) and the other with a 0.1 mm deep sample well;
The Milk Analysis software is designed to only work on an Android tablet and with Preemie Sensor to test human milk composition at neonatal units or human milk banks.
Protein (grams/100 mL)
Protein is the value 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.
Energy (kcal/100 mL)
Calculated from other parameters, caloric intake is key for infant development.
This software is designed to work with or without Preemie Sensor and is used to calculate the recommended personalised fortification of the human milk being used for feeding a specific preterm infant, and to track the infant’s nutritional intake and correlate it with the infant’s growth. This software also displays growth-restriction risk scores so as to support data-driven decisions on the best feeding strategy.
This module of the NutriNTrack software is designed to work with or without Preemie Sensor and to be used to manage donors and to optimise the pooling process for getting tailored pooled milk.
The SpecData™ system uses Preemie Sensor™ and is designed for research purposes. It allows the collection of data that is used later in developing calibration models.
The SpecData™ system has two parts, one that runs on the desktop and is used by the administrator (SpecData desktop app) and the other which runs on mobile devices for use by a team of workers (SpecData mobile app).
The SpecData desktop app is used to set up a project, allocate access to team workers, track work done, and plan work to be done.
The SpecData mobile app has several purposes:
