Welcome to RLS Global Newsletter

The Annual General Meeting is always an important milestone during a business year. This year the meeting was organized via Zoom to meet the government’s recommendation due to Covid-19. Even if it is always more exciting to meet in person as it generates a more interactive dialog, it worked out very well.

Therefore, I would like to take the opportunity to say thanks to all of you whom dialed in and took part in our AGM meeting. It is very important for us to meet the shareholders on regular basis and share the latest updates and provide the answers to all the questions. I am already looking forward to meeting you in person 2021!

Pleased find below a short summary of the latest update regarding the current interest and request for CariSolv due to the Corona pandemic.

Please enjoy the reading.

The dental industry is facing a major challenge due to the Corona pandemic. For more than three months, the entire business has been locked down and only open for emergency cases. Most countries in Europe are excepting the clinics to open in June/July.

The industry is now assessing how to manage the outcome of aerosol. Aerosol is produced from dental instruments like ultrasonic scalers, dental handpieces, and another high-speed instrument. It is also developing during the drilling and repair procedure. When aerosol is formed it radically increases the spread of infection during treatment. It is of course very important to secure safety of the dentist and the nurse during the procedures as well as make it as simply and gently as possible for the patient. The topic is on top of all national/international societies – how to develop the future guidelines to secure and limit the spread of infection as much as possible.

The last month RLS has been approached in regards of CariSolv. CariSolv contains of a gel and is based on the same unique buffered hypochlorite technology platform as other products in the portfolio. CariSolv is applied to the caries and with an instrument, the dentist scrapes away the damaged tissue. In other words, no (or minimal) drilling is required to minimize caries attack and aerosol formation is a very limit problem.

Drilling and filling are standard treatment for a dentist. In the past, the industry has had limit interest to change behavior.

It is of course very satisfying to be able to support in these challenging times. CariSolv has good potential and hopefully the product can be one solution for the dental industry to come across the challenges with aerosol.

However, in January RLS announced that the company made the strategic decision to focus on Wound Management with the focus on ChloraSolv. This is still the future strategy and priorities. But it is of course interesting to find out how the dental business will change and re-shape the next 6-12 months.
