“Boosting infant nutrition through cell phone technology”

PATH, a global health non-profit headquartered in Seattle, announces a joint project with UW CSE funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a safety monitoring system for human breast milk, based on UW CSE’s FoneAstra technology.

“Flash-heating is a simple, effective way to pasteurize breast milk that is more affordable for human milk banks in low-resource settings than standard commercial-grade pasteurization. The total cost for the monitoring system will be less than US$100, compared to commercial-grade pasteurizers, which cost up to $12,000.”
