Lab Equipment Leasing Options

Excedr - Leasing Options

Leasing options and founder-friendly terms for life science companies that want to skip the large cash outlays required to purchase new lab equipment.

DNA double helix

Excedr is an equipment leasing company founded by former scientists dedicated to removing the barriers traditional procurement and financing pose.

Our leasing program is an alternative procurement model that provides new and refurbished equipment to life science startups, middle market, and enterprise companies.

Instead of spending your capital on fixed assets that depreciate over time and become obsolete, lease the lab equipment you need and remain operationally and financially flexible.

That means simplifying equipment procurement and logistics, acquiring exactly what you need for a fraction of the upfront price, and extending your cash runway with our laboratory equipment financing options.

Use the working capital saved and reinvest in other areas of business to accelerate R&D, achieve critical milestones, and reach commercialization quicker.

All Lease Plans Include:

  • Lease terms from two to six years
  • Corrective repair coverage
  • Preventive maintenance (PM)
  • Quick delivery & installation
  • Technical training & validation
  • A dedicated Customer Success Manager
  • Substantial tax deductions*

*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.

Operating Leases with End of Lease Options

Our operating leases, also referred to as fair market value (FMV) leases, or rentals, are designed to be founder-friendly and flexible. Their structure helps you preserve working capital, strengthen the cash flow of your business, and keep business credit lines open for expansions, staffing, and other operational expenses. And unlike capital leases, they are 100% tax-deductible, making them a sound financing option.

At the end of the lease, you have several flexible options: conclude the lease (we pick up the equipment at no cost to the lessee), renew the lease at a discounted price, or cost-effectively purchase the instrument.
