FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Misonix, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSON – News), a developer of minimally invasive ultrasonic medical device technology, which in Europe is used for the ablation of tumors and worldwide for other acute health conditions, has entered into a new, three year distribution agreement with Chirugia, S.A., based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the distribution of the SonaStar(TM) Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator and the BoneScalpel(TM) Ultrasonic Bone Cutter. The agreement provides Chirugia with the rights to sell exclusively in Argentina and includes minimum purchase requirements.
Chirugia has a lengthy history of successfully introducing state-of-the-art medical devices and capital equipment to the Argentine surgical marketplace. They are recognized for their special expertise in neuro and spine surgery.
The SonaStar is used by Neuro and General Surgeons for quick and efficient removal of both hard and soft tumors while sparing most vessels. In addition, OsteoSculpt(TM) bone sculpting technology can be employed with the SonaStar to safely remove osseous structures, thus providing access to the surgical site.
The BoneScalpel is a tissue specific osteotomy device capable of making precise cuts through bone and hard tissue while largely preserving delicate soft tissue structures. It offers the convenience and speed of a power instrument without the danger associated with rotary sharps.
“Misonix is pleased to add Chirugia to our family of South American specialty distributors, a geographic area that is receiving a focused effort from our Sales and Marketing team,” said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix. “We are particularly pleased that they will be distributing two of our key products through their well established surgical products organization.”
