Technology and products

Lockbox LIMS

Lockbox LIMS (also referred to as "Lockbox Suite") is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) developed on the customer relationship management platform. According to a published report on GenomeWeb, "[r]esearchers don't need to be Salesforce customers nor do they need to have the broader Salesforce system implemented internally. Also, current Salesforce customers who want to use Lockbox can add the tool to their existing accounts."[1] The software is built natively and hosted in the cloud (SaaS), and it includes several modules such as sample tracking as well as workflow/protocol, submission, and inventory management modules.[4]


Per the company website, the following can be said about pricing[5]:

  • "The average LIMS price for most Lockbox subscriptions is ~$225/user/month."
  • "The first module purchased is $175/user/month. Each additional module is $25/user/month."
  • "There is a one-time up-front implementation fee that is based on the modules purchased and complexity of your lab’s requirements and workflows."

Additional feature pricing (add-ons):

  • Next-generation sequencing capabilities: $75/user/month
  • Extended field audit trail: 10% of total subscription fees
  • Platform encryption: 20% of total subscription fees
  • Limited use licenses: $75/user/month
