Farmingdale, NY - January 25, 2012 - Misonix, Inc. (NasdaqGM: MSON), a medical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products worldwide for wound debridement, spinal surgery, cosmetic surgery, neurosurgery, laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, announced today the retention of Lytham Partners, LLC to conduct a national investor relations program.

Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix, commented, "Misonix has taken some very important steps over the last two years to streamline its business and to focus on its core competencies in the therapeutic ultrasonic medical device market. This renewed focus on our recurring revenue generating BoneScalpel™, SonicOne®, and SonaStar® systems should position Misonix for expanded growth and profitability into the future. We operate in large markets that approach $3 billion worldwide and are now focused on aggressively marketing our leading-edge products that we believe can produce improved patient outcomes and cost efficiencies. We have in place a combination of both direct and regional distributors throughout Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, India, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, as well as here in the U.S."

"We have retained Lytham Partners to help us reintroduce and appropriately position Misonix within the professional investment community," continued Mr. McManus. "We believe Lytham Partners is uniquely qualified to assist us in charting a course that will reward our loyal shareholders as we move to execute our strategic business plan. We look forward to a very successful collaboration."

Joseph Diaz, managing partner at Lytham Partners, said, "We are pleased to be working with Misonix. Mike McManus and his team have repositioned this company to focus on developing and marketing innovative ultrasonic medical device technology, including high value disposables from their extensive patent portfolio. The financial underpinnings of the company are strong with cash exceeding $6 million and zero long-term debt. In the course of our financial and strategic review, we became convinced that Misonix is a compelling company with significant potential, particularly after sitting in on demonstrations of their 'disruptive' technology, which provides for fast, effective and safe procedures. We are excited about the Company's prospects and its new execution strategy. We believe this is a company with great opportunities ahead."
