Lab Safety Equipment Leases for All Biosafety Levels
Keep Your Lab Safe with the Proper Equipment
Laboratory safety is paramount. Equipping yourself with proper knowledge of OSHA rules, implementing industry best practices, and acquiring laboratory safety equipment that ensures the protection of yourself and those around you are cornerstones of a safe working environment. These steps can prevent accidents in the laboratory that lead to staff injury and exposure, damaged equipment, or contaminated research.
Unfortunately, it’s possible that failure to adhere to safety guidelines could result in a worker being injured or a piece of equipment needing to be replaced. Or even worse, you could incur regulatory fines or lab accreditation concerns. Although laboratory safety rules are constantly evolving, some equipment will always be essential to lab safety, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) like safety goggles or glasses, lab coats, chemical resistant nitrile gloves, and first aid kits.
There’s a long list of things you can do on your own that will help prevent any accidents. Avoid skin and eye contact with all chemicals, observe good housekeeping procedures, and always face protection, eye protection, and hand protection.
Understand how to use eyewash stations and know the locations of all laboratory safety showers, fire extinguishers, and fire blankets. If you work with hazardous chemicals, make sure your team is prepared to handle a chemical spill and know the location of your spill kit in the lab.
These basic rules provide a standard for behavior and safety, but don’t cover everything. Laboratories that deal with potentially dangerous and hazardous materials will need to acquire the correct equipment in order to function properly.

Lab Safety Equipment to Lease
Class I, II, & III Biosafety Cabinets
Working in a laboratory setting can be extremely dangerous without proper precautions. Depending on your type of research or work, scientists may be exposed to toxic and harmful substances. Biosafety cabinets (BSC) are a type of ventilated enclosure meant to protect laboratory workers and the surrounding environment.
Laboratory Fume Hoods
In many laboratory settings, scientists often work with materials that are dangerous to handle. Specifically, certain chemicals and substances give off hazardous fumes. Laboratory fume hoods are safety equipment meant to protect laboratory workers by limiting their exposure to toxic vapors.

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.
