Cleaning the Ameda Milk Collection Kits

No Tubing Care

For mothers using an Ameda electric breast pump, any moisture in the tubing can contaminate their expressed milk with bacteria, mold and viruses. That’s why Ameda breast pumps have Proven Airlock Protection™. During pumping, Ameda’s diaphragm keeps the air from the pump from coming in contact with breast milk. No need to clean the narrow tubing and the milk stays pure. Ameda has the world’s only breast pump with a proven protective barrier.
