Liquid Handler & Lab Automation

How Automated Pipetting Works & How Leasing Saves Time & Money

Excedr’s liquid handler leasing benefits include:

  • Spreading out payments over time eliminates the upfront cost of equipment purchases
  • Payments may be 100% tax deductible*, which makes our leases even more cost-effective
  • It costs less to lease through our program than to purchase outright
  • Our worry-free repair coverage minimizes instrument downtime
  • We streamline the admin work associated with equipment acquisition and upkeep
  • With the savings of our program, clients are better able to reinvest in their core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)

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

No matter what your equipment needs might be, the Excedr lease program can accommodate your end-user’s brand/model preferences. Request a lease estimate today and see how leasing can save you time and money.

Automated liquid handling systems are used within a variety of key industries, including forensics, pharmaceutical drug discovery and development, molecular biology, food and beverage, agriculture, materials science, and clinical diagnostics. Recent optimizations of liquid handling technology, often with add-on features, allow a number of different techniques to be performed in these industries.
Automation has revolutionized the speed of scientific development, providing greater reproducibility and a saving of time and laboratory resources. While every automated liquid handling experiment is unique, for example in terms of throughput, reagents, volumes, order of addition and readout, there are several features that are central to all liquid handling technologies.

Liquid Handler Types & Benefits

Bench-Top Semi-Automatic Pipettors
There are many bench-top semi-automated pipettors available; these offer a more efficient method to manual pipetting that can also reduce the risk of repetitive strain disorder.

Automated Pipetting & Automated Dispensers
The simplest types of liquid handlers are automated pipettes or dispensers. Automated dispensers are designed to deliver precise and measured quantities of liquid to a receptor vessel, such as a microplate. These instruments range from single-channel devices, which dispense one volume at a time, to multi-channel devices, capable of dispensing up to 1536 aliquots simultaneously.

Robotic Workstations
More complex systems with built-in robotic functionality have been developed to manipulate the position of the dispensers and/or containers of liquid handling systems. It is the ability to move and carry out additional functions that differentiates these systems from automated dispensers. Robotic workstations allow for more automation than can be achieved with a static liquid handler.

Fully Integrated Workstations
Fully integrated workstations may enable the integration of additional laboratory devices, such as centrifuges, microplate readers, PCR instruments, colony pickers, heat sealers, shaking modules, barcode readers, spectrophotometric devices, storage devices and incubators. More complex liquid handling workstations can perform multiple laboratory unit operations such as sample transport, sample mixing, manipulation and incubation, as well as transporting vessels to/from other workstations.
The most common functions of integrated liquid handling workstations include nucleic acid preparation, PCR, next generation sequencing, ELISA, time resolved fluorescence, high-throughput screening, assay automation, protein crystallography, solid-phase extraction and liquid-liquid extraction.

Lease a Robotic Workstation to Streamline Your Processes

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 cash savings.

Sale Leaseback

If you recently purchased equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your instrument 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 cash in your budget rather than tying it down to the instrument.

Effect on Credit & Operating Capital

Leasing does not hinder your future borrowing ability and allows you to keep your business credit line open for expansions, staffing, and other operational expenses. Additionally, it strengthens the cash flow of your business and keeps cash reserves free for business development opportunities.

Used Equipment

Unlike traditional financing and leasing companies, the Excedr program can accommodate refurbished/reconditioned equipment in addition to demo units. If you are looking for additional cost-savings, we recommend considering this option.

Speed of Approval

Excedr’s lease program allows you to respond quickly as your need for equipment and technology arises. You can be approved with minimal documentation and have the equipment you need in operation and generating revenue for your business quickly.
