NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - GE Healthcare said today that it has expanded its Scientific Asset Service program to include options for instrument financing and facility relocation.
The company said that the new financing option will allow customers to lease single instruments or to finance entire laboratories. Customers can also obtain loans or enter into sale and leaseback arrangements, GE said.
The company said it will also help customers ensure that facility relocations are “undertaken within agreed timeframes and to exacting standards, meeting specific laboratory process requirements.”
“GE Healthcare is leveraging its reach to offer an unparalleled array of services to laboratories through one provider,” said Bob Moore, services commercial leader at GE Healthcare Life Sciences, in a statement.
Other large tool vendors, including Agilent, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and PerkinElmer have launched similar asset-management programs with the goal of providing customers with a single point of contact for support and services.
