Misonix has entered into a new, three year distribution agreement with Varlix Mexico (Varlix), for the distribution of the SonaStar ultrasonic surgical aspirator and the BoneScalpel ultrasonic bone cutter. The agreement provides Varlix with the rights to sell in Mexico and includes minimum purchase requirements
Varlix, with expertise in neuro and spine surgery, has been introducing medical devices and capital equipment to the Mexican surgical marketplace on a regular basis.
Misonix said that SonaStar is used by neuro and general surgeons for 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, said the company.
Michael McManus, Jr, president and chief executive officer of Misonix, said: “Misonix is pleased to add Varlix to our family of Latin American specialty distributors, a geographic area that is receiving a focused effort from our Sales and Marketing team. We are particularly pleased that they will be distributing two of our leading products through their well established surgical products organization.”
