Misonix, a developer of minimally invasive ultrasonic medical device technology, has entered into a new, three-year distribution agreement with Thimar Al Jazirah Health Care (Thimar) based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The deal is for the distribution of SonaStar ultrasonic surgical aspirator and the BoneScalpel ultrasonic bone cutter.
The agreement provides Thimar with the rights to sell in Saudi Arabia and includes minimum purchase requirements.
The SonaStar is used by Neuro and General Surgeons for quick and efficient removal of 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.
Michael McManus, president and chief executive officer of Misonix, said: “Misonix takes great pleasure in adding Thimar to our growing organization of Middle Eastern specialty distributors, a geographic area that is receiving special emphasis from our Sales and Marketing team. We are pleased that they will be distributing two of our high sales potential products through their well established surgical products sales force.”
