Hospital-Grade Pumps Now Available for All Lactation Rooms

PremiumBreastPumpElectric-150x124As part of Berkeley Lab’s family-friendly initiative, all onsite and offsite lactation rooms will soon have a dedicated hospital-grade pump for each room.  The individual pumps will be delivered throughout the month of October.

To view instructions on how to use the Ameda Elite Electric Breast Pump, model # 17608, please view this instructional video beforehand:  A brief manual will also be placed in each room.

There will be no ‘check-out’ system, as the pumps will be available for use on a first-come, first-served basis.  To ensure that the pumps remain in good working condition, please handle with care and clean up after use.

Ameda personal kits can be purchased from, Target, or other stores.  Please do not try to attach your personal kit from different models, since it will damage the pump, and there are no plans for replacement.

If you have any questions, please contact the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Office at  This initiative is sponsored by the Women Scientists and Engineers Council.
