What is Proven Airlock Protection?
Mold and bacteria easily grow in pump tubing when moisture becomes trapped inside it. Ameda has the world’s only breast pump milk collection system—the Ameda HygieniKit®—with Proven Airlock Protection to help protect breast milk from bacteria, mold, and viruses while pumping.
Ameda’s silicone diaphragm keeps the air from the pump from coming in contact with the expressed milk during pumping. It also prevents milk and moisture from entering pump tubing and creating a fertile environment for the growth of organisms. Unlike other pump kits, this “solid barrier” protects the collected milk, the tubing, and the pump from bacteria, viruses and mold.
For mothers of full-term, healthy babies, Proven Airlock Protection eliminates the need to inspect, dry, clean, or replace narrow pump tubing. For mothers of ill and preterm babies, Proven Airlock Protection simplifies pump use and care while decreasing the risk of infection.
