Added safety with Serres solidifying agent
The Serres Solidifying agent was developed for safe, compliant, and cost-effective transport and management of surgical fluid waste. The Solidifying agent is packed in small 25 or 15g dissolving sachets. Sachets can be added into a suction bag through the serial port before or after the suction procedure. Dissolving sachets are also used for the collection of urine in small containers.
The solidifier is available also as a powder in 2kg tubs. You need approximately 20g of solidifying agent per 1,000ml of liquid. 20g of powder equals approximately 25ml in volume. With pre-gelled suction bags hospitals can save in costs. Especially where pre-gelled bags can be disposed of with regular solid trash. Disposal of suction bags with solid waste can be up to 3 times cheaper than the disposal of liquid waste. However, this depends on the policies of individual hospitals.
