HUMAN MILK- A UNIQUE BODY FLUID, DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BIOLOGICAL FLUIDS.
Breast milk is a non-homogenous emulation with a large fat fraction, with defined distribution of components between water and fat fractions. Breast milk contains analytes in distinctive forms, with unique composition of enzymes, binding proteins and more that are different compared to other bodily fluids, requiring defined processing and expertise. Breast milk is non steriele, requiring certain solutions for sample preservation. Human milk analysis is our expertise. At all levels. Let us manage the analysis so you will focus on the science.
Professional R&D team with human milk analysis expertise, complementary qualified team (lactation consultants, dieticians), wide laboratory resources (analytical chemistry branch, bacteriology division, biochemistry & immunological section, and MORE), computerized systems for participant questionnaire and meta-analysis, a unique database, pre-analytical solutions for human milk sample collection & preservation, standards and controls for human milk.
