Red Arrow Labs, LLC
|Headquarters||900 Ridgefield Dr., Suite 150, Raleigh, North Carolina, U.S.|
Red Arrow Labs, LLC develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.
Red Arrow Labs was founded in 2009 as the offshoot from another IT company.
Red Arrow Labs was acquired in January 2014 by the Dohmen Company, which also acquired ChemWare, Inc. and Clinical Path Consulting. Concerning the acquisition, Red Arrow Labs stated that "Cynthia LaConte, CEO of Dohmen, approached us to explore ways to move health technology forward, which lagged behind market demands."
ChemWare operates as a subsidiary of Dohmen (as ChemWare, LLC), though at some unknown point, ChemWare's HORIZON software was transferred to Red Arrow Labs, which appears to be developing it today.

Source for pricing information is GSA Advantage, off the original ChemWare contract, which still shows active. As prices may change at any time, always contact the vendor directly to obtain a price list or quote.
Note: These are U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) prices, and as such they represent the lowest possible negotiated price.
