German term or phrase: Maß und Serie
Ma und Serie werden in der Kompressionsklasse 2 und in fnf aktuellen Farben angeboten. Context is graduated compression stockings. Any ideas what Ma and Serie could mean? Thanks in avance.

custom / standard
Explanation:
Maß (produktion) = custom-production (auf Maß gemacht = custom-produced)

Serie (produktion) = standard-production (Serie gemacht = standard-produced)

In your text probably: '5 custom and 5 standard up-to-date colors are available in compression class #2'

Another thing though, the grammar in your german sentence doesn't really make sense. Would you like to send a little bit more text to my e-mail at linda_yvonne@hotmail.com That way I think I can help you out more.
