Our Approach 2017-05-09T21:46:47+00:00


Equipping you for success.

At Axelerist, we’re very good at what we do. But we know we’re not the star of this show. We play a supporting role in your achievements — taking care of the important lab and trial equipment details so you and your team can focus on your core business: developing and launching valuable pharmaceutical products.

That’s where flexibility, efficiency and reliability come in.

After thirty years in the business, and leases totaling more than $500 million, we know what pharmaceutical lab and clinical trial equipment is worth to you — new and after years of use. So we can structure deals to make sure you get the most value for the lowest cost of ownership.

We have strong monetary resources, and maintain control all of our own financing — ensuring fast approval decisions, quick turnaround on paperwork and a simple process from start to finish. We have the strength, experience and responsiveness you can rely on to accelerate your scientific options, while enhancing your financial position — and that “we” means real people in our US headquarters, people who know both the particulars of financing and the ins and outs of your equipment.

We get it. So we get it right.

In fact, what really sets Axelerist apart from the pack is our ability to straddle the worlds of financing and life science. It enables us to get up to speed quickly, and help you seize opportunities as they arise. And it allows you to do your job, knowing that we have ours extremely well covered.
