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."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Ca...
Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications — and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor an...
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...
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...
The rise of containers and microservices has skyrocketed the rate at which new applications are moved into production environments today. While developers have been deploying containers to speed up the development processes for some time, there still remain challenges with running microservices efficiently. Most existing IT monitoring tools don’t actually maintain visibility into the containers that make up microservices. As those container applications move into production, some IT operations t...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
