An Equipment Leasing Program for Scientists & Researchers

Gloved hands juggling pieces of lab equipment

Equipment leases designed for life science companies looking to improve R&D, scale efficiently, and manage cash flow more effectively.

We do not maintain an inventory. Instead, we source the equipment when you need it.

Make Scaling Your Biotech Easier

As a lab equipment leasing company founded by a former researcher, we’re dedicated to removing the barriers traditional procurement and financing pose to laboratories.

Don't spend your budget and funding on fixed assets that depreciate over time or even become obsolete.

Lease what you need and skip the significant cash outlays required to purchase new equipment, all while preserving working capital and extending cash runway.

This helps you maintain or increase your operational and financial flexibility.

Use the working capital you save to reinvest in other areas of business.

How Our Leases Work

Founder-Friendly Leases

Our lease agreements are founder-friendly and flexible, helping you preserve working capital, strengthen the cash flow of your business, and keep business credit lines open for expansions, staffing, and other crucial operational expenses and business development opportunities.

2-5 Year Lease Lengths

Leases range from 2 to 5 years. Length will depend on several factors, including how long you want to use the equipment, equipment type, and your company’s financial position. These are standard factors leasing companies consider and help us tailor a lease agreement to fit your needs.

Your Choice of Manufacturer

We don’t carry an inventory. This means you’re not limited to a specific set of manufacturers. Instead, you can pick the equipment that aligns with your business goals and preferences. We’ll work with the manufacturer of your choice to get the equipment in your facility as quickly as possible.

Maintenance & Repair Coverage

Bundle preventive maintenance and repair coverage with your lease agreement. You can spread those payments over time. Easily maintain your equipment, minimize the chances something will break down, repair instrumentation quickly, and simplify your payment processes.

End-of-Lease Options

At the end of your lease, you have multiple options. You can either renew the lease at a significantly lower price, purchase the machine outright based on the fair market value of the original pricing, or call it a day and we’ll come the pick up the equipment for you free of charge.

No Loan-Like Terms

Our leases do not include loan-like terms, which can be restrictive or harmful in certain situations. We do not require debt covenants, IP pledges, collateral,  or equity participation. Our goal is to maximize your flexibility. When you lease with us, you’re collaborating with a true business partner.

In-House Underwriting Process

Our underwriting is done in-house. You can expect quicker turnaround, allowing you respond to your equipment needs as they arise. We require less documentation than traditional lenders and financiers and can get the equipment you need in operation more quickly.

Our Leasing Options

Operating Leases
An operating lease is an agreement where the lessee uses an asset for a specific period but does not own it. Benefits include lower upfront costs, flexibility, reduced risk, improved cash flow, and tax advantages.

It can be an excellent choice for businesses that need to regularly update equipment or technology without incurring high upfront costs or assuming the risks associated with ownership.Our operating leases include 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 (FMV).

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.
