- Minimizes equipment downtime with included complete repair coverage and preventive maintenance
- Takes advantage of potentially 100% tax deductible* payments, providing you significant cash-savings
- Expedites the administrative work needed for instrument procurement and logistics
- Conserves working capital, enabling you to reinvest in your core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)
- Accommodates all manufacturer and model preferences
*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.
Advances in cell imaging technology have transformed the way biologists, pharmacologists, and toxicologists study cells, proteins, and a wide range of molecular interactions.
As such, live-cell imaging has proven to be a crucial part of cellular analysis in fields like molecular biology, neuroscience, diagnostics, and immuno-oncology. When using cell imaging systems, researchers are able to:
- Capture cell behavior in real-time
- Assess cellular health
- Quantify cell dynamics
- Measure cell response to treatment
But, cellular experimentation is only as powerful as your cell imager. The capabilities and configuration of the imager, multi-mode reader (conventional microplate reading combined with widefield microscopy), or microscope can greatly impact your work. With the proper cell imaging system, you can be sure:
- Cell numbers are accurately quantified in your 3D cell culture models
- Cell migration is easily accomplished
- Real-time kinetics are captured without issue
- Multiparameter analysis is performed efficiently
That is to say, all of these factors will determine the success and reproducibility of imaging experiments and downstream assays.
Understanding cellular behavior, response, and structures of both single cells and populations is made possible with the advancement of cell imaging techniques and time-lapse imaging. Compared with fixed cell microscopy, live-cell imaging greatly increases the information available to life science researchers on how stimuli affect the life and death of cells.
Cell imaging systems and methods are suitable for a range of cell-based assays and applications, including:
- Stem cell research
- Cancer research
- Toxicity screening
- COVID-19 and infectious disease research
- and much more
Cell Imager Configurations, Compatibility, & Applications
As mentioned, cell analysis and imaging applications can range from basic cell counts and confluence for culturing or assay preparation to automated assays and three-dimensional culture experiments, aiding many different types of research. Depending on the application needs of your lab or facility, there are several factors to consider.

Cell Imager Leases to Fit Every Need
Whether you’re interested in brightfield, electron, confocal, or fluorescence microscopy, Excedr can lease the exact cell imager you want, making sure you get the equipment best suited for your needs.
When you lease high-quality cell imaging systems through our leasing program, you can also spread out the costs of technology through affordable and flexible payment options, protect the equipment against any unforeseen repair or maintenance issues, and take advantage of potential tax deductions.
Reach out today to learn more about our leasing program’s benefits and receive a cell imager lease estimate.
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.
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.
