Misonix announces new distribution agreement for Ecuador


Thursday, 29 Mar 2012 17:36

Misonix has entered into a new, three-year, exclusive distribution agreement with B Braun Medical for the distribution of the SonaStar Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator and the BoneScalpel Ultrasonic Bone Cutter.  The agreement provides B Braun with the rights to sell throughout Ecuador. 


The SonaStar is used for removal of both hard and soft tumors while sparing most vessels. 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 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.


“We are very pleased to add B Braun as a business partner, adding another top-notch company to our broad-based Latin American distribution team. Their reputation for successfully introducing advanced medical devices is well known,” said Michael A McManus, Jr president and CEO of Misonix. “We are particularly pleased that they will be selling two of our key products throughout Ecuador.”
