The Creamatocrit Plus from EKF Diagnostics, Cardiff, UK, is a mother’s milk fat and calories analyzer with a built-in tube reader. The novel centrifuge is dedicated to providing a fast and accurate creamatocrit measure and estimate of calories in mother’s milk. Small and lightweight, with quiet 3-minute operation, the analyzer is particularly useful in neonatal intensive care units to ensure that premature infants are receiving the calories they need to thrive. The centrifuge guides the separation of foremilk from high-lipid, high-calorie hindmilk to accelerate weight gain in extremely low birthweight infants. The analyzer uses a simple and accurate technique for estimating the lipid concentration and caloric density in mothers’ milk.
