Milk is received and undergoes initial QC check. Every bag is labeled with customer name and a unique ID number for tracking.
Each bag of milk is weighed and logged. Expression date and any other notes written on the bag are recorded for transfer to the final custom label.
Frozen milk is transferred to our SafeDry lyophilization pouches – these protect your milk from contamination while allowing the water vapor to escape. Each pouch remains separate during freeze-drying and ensures your milk is labeled even while in the freeze-dryer.
Your freeze-dried breast milk powder is then packaged using sterile technique inside an ISO5 cleanroom workstation. Each bag you send to Milkify becomes its own pouch of powder.
As part of our final QC check, we measure the water activity (“dryness”) of your breast milk powder to ensure that it will remain shelf stable for up to 3 years. After this, your freeze-dried breast milk is ready for shipment.
