From donation to distribution
Pre-screened nursing mothers collect and freeze their milk at home, then send it to Héma-Québec at regular intervals.
Biochemical tests are conducted on the milk received.
The milk is pasteurized to eliminate viruses and bacteria.
PROCESSING AND STORAGE
Once pasteurized, milk supplies undergo microbiological testing and are then stored in a freezer.
The milk is sent to hospitals to provide treatment to extremely preterm infants.
