Misonix Announces New Distribution Agreement for China


Healthcare Market Reports :- Misonix, Inc. a developer of state of the art, ultrasonic medical device technology, which worldwide is used for acute health conditions, has entered into a new, three year, exclusive distribution agreement with CICEL Enterprise Co., Ltd., based in Beijing, China, for the distribution of the SonaStar® Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator, the BoneScalpel™ Ultrasonic Bone Cutter, and the SonicOne® Ultrasonic Wound Debrider.  The agreement provides CICEL with the rights to sell in the Peoples’ Republic of China, including Hong Kong, and includes annual minimum purchase requirements.  Open market sales are expected to commence after product registration with the SFDA, which can take one year or longer.

CICEL, which has over a decade of market experience with a competitive surgical ultrasound system, is well known in China as an aggressive competitor, and has built a reputation as a distributor of state-of-the-art medical devices and capital equipment with special emphasis on Neuro, Spine, Maxillo-facial and General 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 is quite pleased with the addition of CICEL to our expanding roster of Asian specialty distributors.  CICEL’s reputation as a high-profile distributor of advanced medical equipment in China is well known to us," said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix.  "Their commitment to quality and service, as well as their success in introducing high tech medical devices, was appealing to Misonix.  We are particularly pleased that they will be selling three of our key products through their well established distribution network in China, the largest medical market in Asia."
