After intensive market preparation and work with specialist wound experts in the Netherlands, ChloraSolv® gel was listed on January 1, 2022 in the Z- index and received a positive recommendation for reimbursement from Zorginstituut Nederland (ZN).

Chlorasolv® is already available in other European markets such as the Nordic countries.

ChloraSolv®, manufactured by RLS Global, is a CE marked wound bed preparation gel intended for cleansing and debridement of the wound1. Without damaging the healthy tissue, ChloraSolv® ensures fast and easy debridement by softening and making it easy to mechanically remove devitalized tissue, pus and other biological debris that prevents the wound from healing2,3.
