Improving Nutritional Care for Preterm Babies

Miris HMA™ measures the energy, fat, carbohydrate and protein content in human milk enabling clinicians to adapt fortification to the actual macronutrient content of the milk.

Human Milk Analysis and Target fortification

Fortification is often needed to ensure adequate nutrient intake for preterm infants. However, human milk naturally contains a high variability in protein, fat and carbohydrates. By using a standard amount of fortification to increase macronutrient levels, the variability in the milk will persist. This leads to a lack of control of nutritional intake, and the risk of over or under nutrition is high.

Target fortification is used to tailor human milk by analysing the milk prior to fortification. By knowing the macronutrient composition of the milk it becomes easy to identify the amount of fortification needed.

Using this approach significantly reduces the variability in nutritional intakes compared to standard fortification and gives each baby the best opportunity for stable growth and development.
