Our "KariesScreenTest", which replaces the no longer produced IvoclarVivadent CRT® bacteria test kit, will be available soon.

KariesScreenTest+PThe development of caries and its consequences are causing almost 9 billion euros in health insurance costs for public health insurers, despite years of declining patient numbers (GBE 2017/2015). Therefore, education and screening for caries risks are an integral part of the medical tasks - with infants ideally in close cooperation between paediatricians and dentists.

Dr. med. dent. Lutz Laurisch (Korschenbroich) developed a caries risk test based on the microbiological, highly selective detection of the caries-relevant bacteria Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus from plaque or saliva, which was previously available via IvoclarVivadent under the name CRT®. However, by the end of 2018, IvoclarVivadent decided to discontinue production of this product.

Soon, a successor product under the name KariesScreenTest will be available in stores, resulting from a cooperation between Dr. Ing. Laurisch, the company AUROSAN, minilu and van der Ven-Dental.

"Our biggest concern was the continuous availability of the test procedure for the more than 1,000 users of the product in Germany alone." Laurisch said. "We are currently preparing a comprehensive multimedia information package on the product, which will also be available in time for presentation at the IDS 2019, the International Dental Show in Cologne (March 12-16, 2019). I am pleased that we have succeeded in keeping this important test method available for all colleagues who are offering caries screening in their ofices. Thus, it remains possible to determe subclinical caries risk parameters and protect patients through the appropriate follow-up measures to be taken with positive test results. Our goal is to further improve dental health for all ages. "

The KariesScreenTest is available in packs of 10 dips. As an alternative, the KariesScreenTest + P is offered, which additionally contains 10 test strips for measuring the buffering capacity of the saliva. Both are accompanied by detailed instructions for use, which not only refer to the product purchased, but explain all measures necessary to determine subclinical risk parameters.

We are pleased to have minilu (www.minilu.de) as partner for the dental sales in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In other countries, our REVOIS® distributors are also available as contact persons.

For paediatrics, the KariesScreenTest is distributed by the team of Rösch Medizintechnik, which is part of the AUROSAN Group.
