Misonix Signs New Distribution Agreement With North Med

Misonix has signed a new, two year, exclusive distribution agreement with privately-held North Med, based near Prague in the Czech Republic, for the distribution of the SonaStar ultrasonic surgical aspirator, the BoneScalpel ultrasonic bone cutter, and the SonicOne ultrasonic wound debrider.

The agreement provides North Med with the rights to sell in the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic, and includes minimum purchase requirements.

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 bone sculpting technology can be employed with the SonaStar to safely remove osseous structures, thus providing access to the surgical site.

The BoneScalpel is said to be a tissue specific osteotomy device capable of making precise cuts through bone and hard tissue while largely preserving delicate soft tissue structures. It is also said to offer the convenience and speed of a power instrument without the danger associated with rotary sharps.

According to the company, the SonicOne is an innovative, ultrasonic wound care system that offers tissue specific debridement and cleansing for effective removal of devitalized tissue and fibrin deposits while sparing viable cellular structures.
