Date:5/12/2009

FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Misonix, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSON), a developer of minimally invasive ultrasonic medical device technology, which in Europe is used for the ablation of tumors and worldwide for other acute health conditions, has announced their attendance and participation in the annual Diabetic Foot Global Conference (DFCON), which was held in Los Angeles, CA, March 19-21, 2009. In addition to exhibiting its SonicOne(R) Ultrasonic Wound Cleansing and Debridement System to the approximately 950 clinicians in attendance, Misonix provided an educational grant to support a series of workshops dedicated to improving wound debridement techniques, which was led by Vickie R. Driver, MS, DPM, FACFAS, Director of Clinical Research Foot Care at the Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine. As part of her lecture, Dr. Driver presented details on the advantages of using ultrasonic debridement as compared to other modalities. Post lecture, over 90 attendees participated in "hands on" demonstrations of the SonicOne.

DFCON is dedicated to educating clinical professionals regarding diseases, circulation deficiencies, and non-healing wounds of the lower extremities and the appropriate treatment protocols. Healing of wounds, revascularization, and prevention of amputation are included in their overall strategy for positive patient outcomes.

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 pleased to demonstrate its commitment to the over one billion dollars per year wound care market by supporting important research and treatment programs like DFCON," said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix.
