Clearwater, Fla.-based Bovie Medical’s J-Plasma is a plasma-based cutter and coagulator that uses helium ionization to produce a focused beam of ionized gas over a blade, used for cutting or coagulating during surgeries.
“This agreement represents an important step in advancing the adoption of J-Plasma, and we are delighted to partner with Amerinet, which has an excellent reputation for providing its members with high quality healthcare products at reasonable costs,” CEO Robert Gershon said in prepared remarks.
The agreement went into effect with the signing, Bovie said. Amerinet has over 85,000 members with 33,000 clinics, 3,500 acute care hospitals and 3,300 ambulatory surgery centers, the company added.
In June, Bovie Medical said its CFO Peter Donato will leave the company and will be replaced by corporate controller Jay Ewers as interim CFO while the company searches for a permanent replacement.
