Misonix has received FDA clearance for its new Nexus system, which combines the features of the company’s three handheld devices into a single platform.
The new system includes BoneScalpel, a precision, oscillating tool that makes millimeter-wide cuts in bone while avoiding the surrounding soft tissue, and the SonicOne attachment, a debridement tool to clean wounds and remove damaged tissue or bacterial biofilms during surgery. The other tool, the SonaStar ultrasonic aspirator, can remove tumors. It also includes bone-sculpting tips and various deep-access and laparoscopic probes.
The company plans to begin the U.S. commercialization of Nexus in July. The new system also includes increased power, a touchscreen display, and radio frequency capabilities for use in general surgery procedures.
