MALVERN, Pa., June 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioTelemetry, Inc. (Nasdaq:BEAT), the leading wireless medical technology company focused on the delivery of health information to improve quality of life and reduce cost of care, announced today that Cardiocore, its research services subsidiary, acquired the assets of RadCore Lab, LLC ("RadCore"), an imaging core lab serving the biopharmaceutical and medical device research market. This acquisition broadens the Company's cardiac imaging offerings and adds new oncology, musculoskeletal and neurological imaging capabilities, supported by a state-of-the-art, cloud-based analysis platform. While this acquisition provides growth potential, it is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's 2014 results of operation.
Joseph H. Capper, BioTelemetry's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "2014 is a pivotal year for Cardiocore. As mentioned in the past, adding adjacent service lines to our Research Services business and building a stronger presence in Europe are critical steps in assuring the long-term success of this important division. As such, the acquisition of RadCore is a key milestone in this endeavor. As clinical trial sponsors continue to streamline their outsourcing processes, an integrated cardiac and imaging testing platform will deliver much greater value in terms of speed and efficiency. We are also making excellent progress with our European initiative and will soon be opening a new location in Brussels to provide better logistical and site-level support.
"The completion of these strategic imperatives, coupled with the recent awarding of the two largest studies in our history, has laid the groundwork for a record 2015 for Research Services. I congratulate the Cardiocore team, and I am confident they will continue to build on this momentum."
Scott L. Satin, Cardiocore's President and General Manager added, "We are excited about these advancements and attribute this recent momentum to our full integration within BioTelemetry. As part of the world's largest cardiac data infrastructure, we are able to deliver unparalleled levels of quality, efficiency, speed and specialization to pharmaceutical developers and clinical research organizations."
