The latest of the Ameda line, the durable & innovative 9 lb. Platinum
Electric Breast Pump.
The best way to design a breast pump is to listen to the people who use them.
The new Ameda Platinum™ Breast Pump combines clinician and mom inspired
features to deliver innovative, advanced pumping technology. Ameda has combined
the time-tested, research-proven performance of its original SMB breast pump
with advanced, 21st-century features not found in other hospital-grade breast
pumps. The best of both worlds has arrived.
At the heart of the Ameda Platinum is an internal piston motor. This rotating
piston design — preferred by many lactation professionals — is known for its
smooth feel, comfort, and durability. A breast pump's effectiveness is
determined in part by its waveform — the curved wave-like line that represents
how suction builds, peaks and releases. Backed by more than 65 years of research
and clinical experience, the Ameda Platinum was carefully designed to replicate
the smooth, original SMB™ waveform. The reason? Research comparing pump
waveforms found its effectiveness at expressing milk to be unsurpassed.
Pump vacuum levels often decrease between single and double pumping and can
drop significantly in higher altitude locations.
This can present challenges for mothers who require higher vacuum levels for
effective expression. Ameda's exclusive, VacuSense Technology, was engineered to
emit and receive signals nearly every ½ second, allowing the pump to sense
negative pressure levels. Should the vacuum detected not match the settings the
mother has selected, the control mechanism adjusts internally. Featured
exclusively in the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump, VacuSense Technology offers the
most consistent pumping experience no matter the location or protocol.
- Perfect engineering for long-term use, including establishing and
maintaining milk production
- VacuSense™ Technology, which provides consistent suction during double
and single pumping and at varying altitudes
- CustomControl™--Unlike single-dial pumps, the Platinum has separate,
soft-touch, push-button vacuum and cycle controls, so it doesn’t make
decisions for mothers or limit their choices, allowing mothers to “follow
heir flow” at every pumping. With the Platinum, mothers can easily find
their own most effective pump settings every time and, like the
breastfeeding baby, achieve a “multi-phase” experience
- Well-lit LCD displays include a timer that makes following pumping
protocols easier day and night
- Whisper-quiet operation and automatic suction and release for the ultimate
ease of use and effectiveness
- Built-in double holders securely support milk bags or bottles of any size
- Easy-to-clean flat-front control panel
- Compatible with all Ameda HygieniKit Milk Collection Systems, which have
Proven Airlock Protection™ to keeps milk and moisture from entering
narrow, hard-to-clean tubing while pumping. All parts are without BPA and
