BioTek Instruments Offers Lease and Purchase Alternatives for Microplate Instrumentation

September 24, 2008

BioTek Instruments, Inc., introduces lease and purchase options from North Star Leasing Company for BioTek’s microplate instrumentation. Through this program, U.S. customers may lease and even purchase BioTek’s microplate technologies through one of several convenient monthly payment programs. Financing is available for up to 60 months, with flexibility for early payoff with no penalty. North Star Leasing also offers a $1.00 instrument buyout at the end of the finance period.

The lease of instruments like BioTek’s Synergy™ 4 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader or the new EL406™ Microplate Washer Dispenser offers several advantages over an outright purchase. Customized financing solutions, potential tax advantages and monthly payments may be attractive to cost-conscious customers, while flexibility in instrument procurement and availability may be attractive to rapidly growing or changing laboratories.

Lease and purchase options for BioTek instruments are available for United States customers only. For additional information on these instrument leasing options, contact
