Misonix, Inc., 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, exclusive distribution agreement with Ekrior Lda, a Division of Avanco Sistemas Medicos, based in Barcarena, Portugal, for the distribution of the SonaStar™ Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator, the BoneScalpel™ Ultrasonic Bone Cutter, and the SonicOne® Ultrasonic Wound Debrider. The agreement provides Ekrior with the rights to sell in Portugal, and includes minimum purchase requirements.
Ekrior is growing rapidly in the Portuguese market, largely by building a reputation as a distributor of state-of-the-art medical devices and capital equipment, with special emphasis on radiation oncology and specialized 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™ 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.
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. The SonicOne establishes a new standard in advanced wound care and ensures progress towards patient healing.
“Misonix welcomes Ekrior to our growing family of distribution partnerships in Europe. We know Ekrior as a high-profile distributor of advanced technology products in Portugal,” said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix. “Ekrior has a reputation as a high integrity sales organization and is well known for successfully introducing high tech medical devices to their markets. We are particularly pleased that they will be distributing three of our product platforms through their well established distribution system.”
