How Microscopy Works & How We Save You Time & Money

Here are the advantages of our microscope leasing program:

  • Eliminates the upfront cost of purchasing equipment by deferring its cost over time
  • Payments may be 100% tax deductible*, which yields you significant cash-savings
  • Leasing through Excedr costs less than buying the equipment outright
  • Instrument downtime is decreased with our complete repair coverage
  • The administrative work associated with instrument procurement and maintenance is completed by us
  • With the capital saved through our program, labs 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.

Despite the diversity in methods, the Excedr lease program is able to source all instrument types and can accommodate any brand preferences your end-user might have. Request an estimate today and see how leasing can discount your wide-field microscope price.

Microscopy is a field of study that allows us to look at objects that are too small to be observed by the naked eye using microscopes. Optical, acoustic, x-ray, or electron waves enlarge images which can be either dynamic or static. Microscopy is used across most life sciences, including:

  • Cell and developmental biology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Plant science
  • Marine biology

  • Microbiology
  • Forensics
  • Academia
  • Clinical and commercial, research, and development

Beyond life science, microscopy is a firmly established analysis tool in materials, formulation, and information technology. 

Light microscopes are essential analytical laboratory tools that allow scientific investigators to view objects to as much as a thousand times their original size. In its simplest form, the light microscope is composed of a clear lens that magnifies a sample and a light source to illuminate it.These more common varieties are also known as optical microscopes. However, most are much more complex, housing numerous fine-tuned lenses with tightly controlled dimensions, all within the body of the instrument itself.  Generally speaking, the more lenses, objectives, and complex eyepieces they have the more expensive the microscope becomes. 

Excedr’s equipment leasing program can help you get any brand or model of confocal, electron, fluorescence, infrared, multiphoton, raman, or x-ray microscope into your lab at a fraction of the upfront price.

We Offer Microscope Leases to Fit Every Need

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.

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/renting 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 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.
