Serres hosts surgical suction and fluid management demos in Düsseldorf parallel to MEDICA

Helsinki, Finland, November 28, 2019 Last week, Serres had great pleasure to welcome more than 30 distributors to Serres Saga demo events in Düsseldorf held in conjunction with MEDICA, a leading medical trade fair in the world.  Serres distributors were thrilled to see the latest advances in smarter fluid management in the OR, and convinced by Serres Saga’s capabilities to address both the challenges of more fluids during the procedure and more procedures during the day.

The recently launched Serres Saga has been designed to manage large fluid volumes more conveniently, efficiently and safely.

“Higher fluid volumes add stress and inefficiency in the OR. Serres Saga allows healthcare staff to focus on their primary task by reducing a lot of manual and repetitive work often associated with the increased amounts of liquids, “says Laure Lacoste, Product Group Director, Serres Oy.

“Excessive liquid absorption during endoscopic urology or gynaecology procedures can have severe post-operative consequences, often referred as TURP syndrome. Saga displays real-time liquid deficit between irrigated and collected fluids, even when liquid volume is very large. It frees nurses from manual tracking and allows fast reaction for improved patient safety,” Lacoste continues.

“Our long-term distributors have helped hospitals around the world to set standards on reliable and safe fluid collection and disposal for decades. With Saga, we reinvent suction and fluid management again. , concludes Lacoste.


On top of demos, MEDICA provided Serres with a great platform to conduct many successful business meetings with the distributors to shape the sales and marketing plans for the year to come. This year, the traditional distributor dinner gathered full house at the Brewery Im Füchschen of Düsseldorf.

MEDICA took place from 18-21 November 2019 and attracted more than 115 000 visitors as well as 5,100 exhibitors from 70 countries, bringing together the entire spectrum of innovations for outpatient and clinical care.
