Luna™ is an automated cell counter that accurately measures cell number and viability for various purposes. Incorporating many innovations introduced by Logos Biosystems, Luna™ provides you with an accurate, fast, easy and affordable cell counting experience. Accelerate your research with the most advanced technology.
Luna™ automated cell counter gives you the accurate live/dead cell counting results within 7 seconds. Based on the precision optical design and the new software algorithm, the cell counting accuracy is unsurpassed. Within a 5X104 ~ 1X107 cells/ml concentration range and 3 - 60 cell diameter, Luna™ software accurately detects live/dead cells, and discriminates cell debris. Individual cells in cell clusters are also successfully counted by Luna’s new de-clustering algorithm.
Minimal Counting Cost
Automated cell counters utilize disposable counting slides to eliminate washing steps of manual cell counting with glass hemocytometer. Logos Biosystems has developed innovative T-Bond™ technology (patent-pending) to manufacture the precision cell counting slides more efficiently. The unit price of slide is almost half of the other brands, saving significant consumable costs for heavy users.
Shortest Time to Result - less than 7 seconds for a result
All image-based cell counters utilize image analysis software to extract and analyze live/dead features of cells. During this analysis process, color information is changed to binary (black & white) information, and the features such as brightness, circularity, and diameter are extracted and analyzed. With old algorithms, this process usually takes more than 30 seconds. However, Luna™ has integrated faster computing power and the most advanced cell detection algorithm to reduce the analysis time. It only takes less than 7 seconds by Luna™ cell counter, which is approx. 5 times faster than other cell counters.
After you performed the cell counting, you can immediately monitor which cells are counted as live or dead on the Luna™ cell counter screen. Green and red circles indicate each live and dead cell. You don’t need additional PC software to check the counting result.
Cell counting results can be saved as a high resolution TIFF image file and/or PDF-format report files to the USB drive. Luna™ cell counter provides re-analysis options for the saved image file. Whenever you want to perform the re-counting, you can do it again and again with the saved cell images.

"I have found the Luna cell counter to be reliable and very easy to use. With its small footprint it doesn't take up much space on the bench. With our work that requires 100's of counts it has meant less time has to be spent on cell counting. I would recommend to anyone who spends a lot of time counting cells."
