NeoMed Announces Release of the NeoBottle™

Woodstock, GA - June, 2011 – NeoMed, Inc. intro­duces the NeoBottle; the first closed-system container that combines collec­tion, storage, forti­fi­ca­tion and delivery of fresh human breast milk (HBM) or enteral/oral liquids through a single device. Featuring collapsible floor tech­nology and a unique airtight, leak-proof lid, the NeoBottle may extend the shelf life of fresh HBM or oral liquids by allowing users to evac­uate excess air reducing the risks of oxidiza­tion and expo­sure to bacteria prior to delivery. Per the American Dietetic Association (ADA): "Fresh milk that is unit-dosed at time of expres­sion may be held at refrig­er­ated temper­a­tures for up to 96 hours if expressed under clean condi­tions and the container is not entered prior to infant feeding. This is partic­u­larly impor­tant for small volume, fresh milk feed­ings for ill or preterm high-risk infants."[1] The NeoBottle is specif­i­cally designed to meet this recom­men­da­tion.

Tony Lair, President & CEO of NeoMed stated: "We recog­nize that proper handling is a crit­ical compo­nent for preserving and deliv­ering fresh HBM. Many preemie to micro-preemie patients rely on fresh HBM to miti­gate dangerous feeding intol­er­ances, gut diseases and notably NEC. This revo­lu­tionary new device provides a cost effec­tive solu­tion for mothers, clin­i­cians and phar­ma­cists to safely manage and preserve any type of oral liquid."
