Analytical Instrument Leasing
What are Analytical Instruments Used For?
Laboratory analytical instruments are used to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of specific samples by evaluating physical, chemical, and molecular properties.
Different applications for these types of devices include chemical analysis, clinical studies, and material science research. Some instruments can perform multiple types of analysis, but most focus on finding one specific attribute using very specific techniques.
Why Lease Analytical Laboratory Equipment?
Although buying laboratory equipment outright might seem like a sound choice for equipment procurement, it can negatively impact your budget overall. As you research which analytical instrument you’re going to acquire, consider your lab’s budget, physical space, materials needed, and traits you’ll be testing for as well.
Excedr’s leasing program provides a number of benefits to labs, regardless of stage of development or area of focus. Our analytical instrument category includes, but is not limited to, a wide range of high-quality devices, from calorimeters and nitrogen evaporators to elemental, total carbon, thermal, and gas analyzers.
We’ll work closely with the manufacturer of your choice to source the exact mass spectrometer or particle analysis device you need, and make sure that everything has undergone thorough calibration.
In addition to our analytical instrument category, we lease a wide variety of spectroscopy equipment, chromatography systems (or chromatographs), and microscopes. Our spectroscopy selection includes UV-Vis, X-ray, and Infrared-specific instruments, and our chromatography leases include HPLC and LC/MS systems, among others.
Excedr’s Leasing Program Benefits:
- Eliminates the upfront cost of purchasing equipment by spreading its cost over time
- Minimizes equipment downtime with included complete repair coverage and preventive maintenance
- Takes advantage of potentially 100% tax deductible* payments, providing you significant cash-savings
- Expedites the administrative work needed for instrument procurement and logistics
- Conserves working capital, enabling you to reinvest in your core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)
- Accommodates all manufacturer and model preferences
*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.

Calorimetry measures the change in energy of an object or system by observing the heat transfer that occurs with its surroundings. This heat exchange may occur due to physical changes, chemical reactions, or even sudden phase changes in the object or systems being observed. Calorimeters provide the results.
The process of observing a material to determine its elemental or isotopic composition is called elemental analysis. The substance that is being observed to identify and measure its chemical components is referred to as an analyte.
Scientists across many disciplines use mass spectrometry to identify unknown compounds, elucidate structures, and quantify components in a sample, whether it is solid, liquid, or gas. A mass spectrometer measures the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of molecules (and/or its fragments) and atoms. There is a wide variety of mass spectrometers available, which come in different configurations, from standalone, benchtop models to integrated systems, such as GC/MS and LC/MS.
Nitrogen evaporators are used in a wide range of industries to prepare samples before they are analyzed. These machines dry and concentrate samples, allowing for gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry to be performed on them. Samples are loaded into the machine and the nitrogen is applied to remove moisture from the sample.
Particle Analysis Devices
Studying the properties of particles or powders can provide scientists with vital information about industrial processes that involve these samples. Though small in size, particle technology is extremely important in chemical engineering and material sciences. Particle technology looks to observe particles traveling in bulk.
Polarimetry is used to measure the optical activity of an organic or inorganic compound using polarized light. It is essential in understanding chiral molecules, which are characterized by their ability to rotate a plane of polarized light. A chiral molecule is going to have the ability to slow light down, visually altering the direction of oscillation. The wavelength’s change in direction is then measured.
Rotary evaporation is accomplished using a rotary evaporator, also known as a rotovap. Rotary evaporation is a technique used to separate a compound of interest from a low-boiling solvent, such as an organic, inorganic, or polymeric substance.
In material sciences, heat is used in conjunction with other measurement techniques to determine the different properties of samples. The group of techniques that performs these measurements are referred to as thermal analyzers. Thermal analysis can also be described as the measurement of heat transfer through structured mediums.
Testing water purity is not only important for clean drinking water, but it also plays a big role in the pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and power industries. If bacteria and other unintended organic compounds are present in the water they can render the water useless or indicate that there is an issue with the filtration or storage system.

Operating Lease Benefits
Operating leases make it easier to keep pace with technological advances in your field. The monthly lease payments can often be lower than monthly financing payments, and may be 100% tax deductible as well, yielding additional cash-savings. Furthermore, when you lease, you avoid the hefty upfront payments required when buying equipment with cash or a loan.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
