Default Lease options?

Hi folks,

I don't want to involve a sales rep yet so I'm wondering if any of you know what the typical lease rates are on an Illumina NextSeq. I know the terms vary, but any experiences will help me with budgeting for a new laboratory.

Thanks very much!

Not specific to the platform but when I looked at this for a HiSeq it's basically 1/3rd list price/year - so if you buy one and amortise the platform purchase over 3 years, it's as good a deal as leasing. YMMV on the NextSeq.

Woah... I never imagined it would be so high but I guess the technology is advancing so quickly that the equipment depreciates equally quickly. I agree that one might as well purchase.
