PITTSBURGH, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse (PLSG), the region's only pure life sciences investment firm, and managing member of the PLSG Accelerator Fund, announced today that it closed seven investments totaling more than $315,000 in the first half of 2013.  The investments demonstrate continued commitment to the Western Pennsylvania region and the life sciences industry.

Three participating companies, Wellbridge Health, PHRQL Inc. and NewCare Solutions, are in the growing Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) segment and are first-time investments for PLSG. Follow-on investment companies that PLSG has remained committed and active with include Alung Technologies Inc., ATRP Solutions, MS2 Array LLC. and Quantum Ops.

"The demand for capital from both the PLSG and PLSG Accelerator Fund continues to grow and is now more than six times our capital available to invest. We will return to our more robust levels of investing when our current portfolio companies begin to exit."
