The two firms have entered a three-year deal, whereby Johannesburg-based ABS will supply Misonix’s SonaStar ultrasonic surgical aspirator and BoneScapel ultrasonic bone cutter throughout the country. The agreement provides annual minimum purchase requirements. Further financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
