NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Manhattan Labs, a high service regional clinical laboratory serving the New York tri-state area announced that it has completed a $3.7 million equity capitalization. The funding will be used to expand into new testing areas, develop strategic industry partnerships and further accelerate business development efforts.
The $3.7 million investment was led by existing investor Trevi Health Capital LLC (New York, NY), a specialized healthcare investment firm. Since its founding in 2008, Manhattan Labs has experienced rapid revenue growth of approximately 33% per annum. This funding will allow the Company to further accelerate its growth efforts through additional expansion in Manhattan and expansion into other complementary geographies. "Completion of the capital raise will allow us to build upon our solid core market in Manhattan and also enables us to expand our business in very meaningful ways into new territories," said Manhattan Labs CEO, Ken Cerney. "We are pleased by the confidence shown in our growth plans by our investor partners. Their deep industry knowledge and continued partnership will help us develop and expand the Manhattan Labs brand throughout the New York tri-state area."
Ken Cerney joined the Company as CEO on November 1, 2012 from Strand Diagnostics, where he served as President. Ken stated "I was drawn to Manhattan Labs by the chance to grow a well-respected, high service lab into the preeminent provider of concierge lab services in the New York tri-state area. I believe we can leverage our untapped potential by exploring strategic partnerships with physicians, insurers, hospitals and reference labs."
"We have been impressed with how fast the Company has grown," said Trevi Health Capital Partner, Scott Cragg. "Our research of the market aligns us with Manhattan Labs in the belief that there is a service gap between the national laboratories and the smaller regional labs. Manhattan Labs provides a gold standard of service for high-end physicians and continues to be at the forefront of advances in science and technology. We believe that makes Manhattan Labs an attractive partner for physicians in the tri-state area."
With facilities in Manhattan and New Jersey, Manhattan Labs supplies physicians and their patients with a complete range of concierge-level laboratory services. The added capital will also fund development of a variety of new testing panels and value-added services.
"Lab tests represent three percent of the total healthcare spend while influencing more than 70 percent of medical decisions," added Manhattan Labs Board Member Edgard Zwirn, a founder and former Executive Chairman of Unilabs SA, one of the largest European labs. "Advances in science and technology provide for earlier detection and a more personalized approach to care. We are confident that Manhattan Labs will be at the forefront of helping physicians increase the quality of health care to patients and reduce overall healthcare costs."

When building DevOps or continuous delivery practices you can learn a great deal from others. What choices did they make, what practices did they put in place, and how did they connect the dots? At Sonatype, we pulled together a set of 21 reference architectures for folks building continuous delivery and DevOps practices using Docker. Why? After 3,000 DevOps professionals attended our webinar on "Continuous Integration using Docker" discussing just one reference architecture example, we recogn...

An overall theme of Cloud computing and the specific practices within it is fundamentally one of automation. The core value of technology is to continually automate low level procedures to free up people to work on more value add activities, ultimately leading to the utopian goal of full Autonomic Computing. For example a great way to define your plan for DevOps tool chain adoption is through this lens. In this TechTarget article they outline a simple maturity model for planning this.

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

Here’s a novel, but controversial statement, “it’s time for the CEO, COO, CIO to start to take joint responsibility for application platform decisions.” For too many years now technical meritocracy has led the decision-making for the business with regard to platform selection. This includes, but is not limited to, servers, operating systems, virtualization, cloud and application platforms. In many of these cases the decision has not worked in favor of the business with regard to agility and cost...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
