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."

Analysis of 25,000 applications reveals 6.8% of packages/components used included known defects. Organizations standardizing on components between 2 - 3 years of age can decrease defect rates substantially. Open source and third-party packages/components live at the heart of high velocity software development organizations. Today, an average of 106 packages/components comprise 80 - 90% of a modern application, yet few organizations have visibility into what components are used where.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
Throughout history, various leaders have risen up and tried to unify the world by conquest. Fortunately, none of their plans have succeeded. The world goes on just fine with each country ruling itself; no single ruler is necessary. That’s how it is with the container platform ecosystem, as well. There’s no need for one all-powerful, all-encompassing container platform. Think about any other technology sector out there – there are always multiple solutions in every space. The same goes for conta...

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.

Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
