Staties Help Lost Family Find Way at Purgatory


July 19, 2011 — At 2:25 p.m. a cell phone call was received by the Massachusetts State Police Communications Center from a woman in the Purgatory Chasm Forest in Sutton. She stated that she and her 4 grandchildren, ranging in ages from 7-14 years, were lost. She also said she could hear the cars from a highway but could not see them. A command post was established along Route 146 in Sutton as Troopers from the Millbury Barracks took up strategic locations along the fence line that separates the forest from the highway.


By utilizing the cruiser sirens, Troopers were able to direct the family to safety. While Troopers awaited fence cutting tools, one of the four children collapsed. Troopers scaled the fence and provided first aid. In the interim, the grandmother also collapsed. First aid was provided to her and care of all parties was turned over to responding EMT’s. All five were transported to the U Mass Hospital Lake Street in Worcester and treated for dehydration and abrasions.  File photo.

Hopkinton Company to Ring The NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell on Tuesday, July 19

HOPKINTON, Mass., July 18, 2011 -- The Starter, a bronze sculpture by Hopkinton artist Michael Alfano may memorialize the firing of the starter's pistol in Hopkinton for the world-renown BAA Boston Marathon, but Hopkinton's own Kevin Hrusovsky, President and CEO of Caliper Life Sciences (NASDAQ: CALP),  will start what could be a marathon day of trading tomorrow when he rings the opening bell of the NASDAQ Stock Market at 9:00 am. He wil be joined by family, management and several strategic customers to participate in this special event. This event highlights Caliper’s successful transformation into a leading diversified life sciences tools company.

According to a press release issued this morning, Caliper’s strategy is to commercialize disruptive technologies that revolutionize and personalize health care through improved patient diagnosis, prognosis and treatment by developing market-leading tools and services for pre-clinical and clinical imaging, digital pathology, sample preparation for next generation sequencing, molecular and companiondiagnostics, stem cell research, as well as the development of biotherapeutics and vaccines.

It further states that over the past seven years, Caliper has grown core products and services, increased margins and become operating cash flow positive by completing several strategic acquisitions and divesting non-core product lines. Caliper reported organic revenue growth of over 20% in the first quarter of 2011. The market has rewarded Caliper’s success with an increase in its stock price during each of 2009 and 2010 of over 150%, and an approximate 30% increase year-to-date in 2011.

“Ringing the Opening Bell is a great opportunity to recognize our families, employees, customers, collaborators and investors for their dedicated support in building Caliper into a successful high growth company with strong potential for making life changing impact in health care. Their hard work and inspiring ‘can do’ attitudes have enabled Caliper to become a diversified, high growth tools provider with attractive short- and long-term prospects,” said Kevin Hrusovsky, President and CEO of Caliper. “We are excited about our future as we launch important products into attractive markets designed to revolutionize and personalize medicine and transform ‘sick care’ to health care. We believe Caliper’s product and technology platforms have the potential to increase our annual organic revenue growth to 15% or greater, with incremental revenues contributing at least 60% of revenue to operating margin.”
