Prolacta Bioscience, a provider of human milk-based nutritional products for premature infants, opened its new 67,000 square foot facility in the City of Industry, California
, 20 miles east of Los Angeles.
The freezer at the new facility stands at 115,560 square foot, which will provide controlled frozen storage capacity for more than 110,000 liters of breast milk. The complex also includes two ISO 8 and one ISO 7 clean rooms totaling over 10,000 square feet.
Prolacta CEO Scott Elster said,"We now have a facility that can provide human milk nutritional products for every Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the U.S. As hospitals continue to transition to exclusive human milk diets in their NICU, we are positioned to meet their needs by providing fortifier, pasteurized milk, and ready-to-feed products, all free of any cow milk or cow milk proteins.”
"Prolacta stands alone in being able to provide NICUs with a complete line of human milk formulations to meet the needs of critically ill premature infants," Elster added. "We are proud to be the first and only company to make human milk nutritional products that will be of such a significant benefit for premature infants."
