Equipment Financing for Startups, Middle Market, & Enterprise Companies

Equipment leasing and financing needs can vary, depending on your company’s needs. However, whether you’re a small business, middle market, or big business company, Excedr’s equipment leasing options can help you preserve working capital while accessing the latest technology available on the market. 

Our leasing program supports business owners in numerous industries as well, from life sciences and healthcare to manufacturing, food science, and renewable energy. Whatever type of equipment you’re interested in, chances are we can help you acquire it.

Besides Excedr’s leasing program, some of our other equipment solutions include outfitting new or existing lab space, providing access to refurbished equipment when leasing new equipment isn’t financially feasible, and connecting labs that have unused equipment with resellers that will take the equipment off their hands for cash.

Furthermore, we cover the differences between lab equipment rentals and leases and whether it’s smarter to buy used equipment or lease instead. 

While rentals and leases are very similar, what differentiates our leases from rentals is the period of time you have the equipment for. Short-term rentals of scientific laboratory equipment are uncommon because the instruments are generally highly customized by the manufacturer for the end-user’s specific needs. Instead of renting the machine for the short term, consider leasing.

Sometimes renting equipment for a short period of time can make sense for your laboratory. However, it might not be the best choice. While buying a pre-owned instrument can seem cost-effective and simple, it’s important to consider the quality of the specific used equipment before you finalize the purchase.

No matter what decision you make, we’re here to help. Because our lease terms are flexible, you won’t be staring down huge down payments or exorbitant service fees, making it easy to acquire equipment in multiple ways. This is because leasing isn’t the same as getting a loan from a commercial bank. We’re able to structure our leases with more flexibility than banks are willing to offer.

Read on to learn more about all of our equipment leasing and rental solutions, as well as the pros and cons of short-term vs. long-term rentals and buying used vs. leasing new or refurbished.

Solutions for Equipment Procurement & Lab Space Outfitting

Laboratory Outfitting

Need to outfit a new space? If you’re launching, or planning to launch, a new laboratory, you will need multiple pieces of instrumentation to get started. However, acquiring all of the necessary equipment, whether it’s common or specialized, can be challenging. It can also cost you a lot of money.

Lab Equipment Rentals

Renting Versus Leasing Scientific Instruments. If you’re thinking of renting lab equipment, it’s important to know how long you’ll need to use the instrumentation. If you need the equipment for two years or longer, consider Excedr’s lease program. We offer long-term lease options between 2 and 6 years.

Refurbished Equipment Leases

Refurbished Scientific Instruments from a Third-Party Vendor. Used scientific equipment can be refurbished either by a third party or by the manufacturer themselves. When buying equipment from a third party, it’s important to conduct due diligence on the seller.

Excedr’s Leasing Program Benefits

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.


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.

Operating Capital Benefits
