Safety made easy

Medela`s Disposable Fluid Collection System supports the safe collection and disposal of suctioned fluids. All liners are equipped with multiple safety features such as an overflow and bacteria filter, a smoke pre-filter and a non-return valve to prevent back-flow. The hard-top lid seals precisely and immediately enable operation at low noise levels. Because the vacuum is automatically attached to the liner through the jar, no extra vacuum tubing needs to be connected with every liner exchange.  

Set-ups with switch-over valve or serial connection enable handling of large volumes. The liners are made of non-toxic materials and can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
