Robotics Company Clarapath Expanding HQ in Hawthorne

Congratulations to BCW Member Clarapath which this week announced that it is expanding its global headquarters space in Hawthorne to include 30,000 more square feet allowing room for an expanded workforce, assembly, and manufacturing areas. The company said the expansion is fueled by its recent $32 million fund raise and to support continued growth and demand for its SectionStar robotic instrument system.

Clarapath also announced that SectionStar has reached an important milestone – passing UL certification, a global safety leader. This step is critical to both the non-clinical and clinical deployment of the device, enhancing reliability and efficiency of the pathology lab. “The UL certification is a trusted and respected symbol of safety in electronics and is a critical next step in bringing SectionStar to market. This is a significant milestone that demonstrates the rigor that our engineering and robotics teams have put into the development and safety of SectionStar,” said Eric Feinstein, CEO of Clarapath.

Clarapath is adding new staff in the company’s software engineering and computer science departments. The company aims to hire at least 10-15 additional Westchester –based employees in the next 12 months. Additionally, the company has added a number of new senior leaders and advisory members under the Clarapath ecosystem.

“With the talent of this Clarapath team and these new additions, and the support of our investors, we are confident that we can address the shortage in histotechnologists and provide consistent, uniform samples that labs need. The future is bright for SectionStar and the Clarapath team,” added Feinstein.

On Thursday, Feinstein and vice-president of strategy and corporate development Matthew Claster joined the Westchester Innovation Network’s virtual Convene meeting with WIN’s innovation members and matches to share insights about building a new company, finding funding and identifying partners that will help early-stage companies survive their challenges.

Clarapath is located at BCW Member Robert Martin Company’s 12 Skyline Drive building. “Congratulations to BCW Member Clarapath and BCW Rising Stars Eric Feinstein, CEO and Matt Claster, VP, Strategy and Business Operations on this exciting announcement .Tripling space at Robert Martin Company in Hawthorne, expanding R and D and adding a full floor of advanced manufacturing as well as a Clinical Research organization to run their own biopsy slides. They have raised $32 million Series B funding to speed up manufacturing, grow workforce and building partnerships for autonomous micotomy. An amazing robotics company aimed at catalyzing change in the way laboratories process human and animal tissues. Another most impressive announcement…and an example of the power of innovation in Westchester,” said BCW President & CEO Marsha Gordon.
