Great little cell counter! Quick and easy!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell Culture

"Just recently purchased the LUNA-II Automated Cell Counter. Love this cell counter. It is small, easy to use and very helpful. It makes cell counting quick and easy so I can pass all of my cell lines quicker, getting them done in a single day rather than two. I can also make better calls on split ratio since the LUNA-II lets me know how many live and dead cells I have and the percent viability. Data can be printed and collected on a thumb drive. So glad I was able to make this purchase!"

"The LUNA-FL™ Dual Fluorescence Cell Counter is very fast and easy to use. Our lab utilizes this instrument to count multiple cell types of different sizes; I much prefer it to a hemocytometer. The Luna is small and easily fits on our bench top. The counting and viability data is accurate and reproducible."

Great addition to your cell culture room.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell culture room

"It's a very easy to use cell counter, the results are reproducible, it has the option of calculating dilutions for your desired cell concentration which is pretty useful. The disposable slides are the best option but we also have the reusable slides and the only issue is that it's delicate so you have to be careful using it."

Great product, makes routine cell counting and viability possible!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting, cell viability assays, HEK293T cells

"Great product for the price. Easy to use and quick. It has made it possible to do routine cell counting and viability testing, that were otherwise very time consuming. There are few settings to play with, but they are enough to tune the machine to our needs, mainly counting HEK293T cells and viability by trypan blue staining. We could get consistent values between the machine readings and manual counting under the microscope."

Fast, rapid, reliable counting with AO/PI.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Count PBMCs

"From 10 ml whole blood it is estimated to obtain roughly 10 million PBMCs. When counting with the LUNA FL with the AO/PI stain, we indeed see total cell counts approximating what we expected from what is known. This system in combo with this dye mix offers a fast, reliable solution to count PBMCs."

Great results but slightly slower than manual counting.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Tissue culture

"Using the automated cell counter, I am able to count a large number of cells in the counting chamber compared with manual counting in a hemocytometer. This might lead to more accurate cell numbers but I don't really need that accurate of a count in routine tissue culture work. The live vs dead function is not useful for me because the dead cell number is usually quite low when passaging cultures."

Accurate and easy to use
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting for immunological research

"We are a research lab that does in vitro and in vivo immunological studies. Viability and accurate cell counts are extremely important to our studies. The Luna FL is extremely user friendly and easy to switch from brightfield to fluorescence to GFP. The option to use a resusable slide also makes this instrument cost effective when only counting one sample. It takes up very little bench space and fits in our small tissue culture room where space is a premium. The ability to demo both the Luna instruments side by side for as long as we needed was a must for us and Logos allowed us the time and support to test all counting methods completely."

Ensures scRNA-Seq Success
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Count/viability QC for scRNA-Seq

"This instrument has been indispensable for our single cell RNA-Seq sample prep process. Most of our samples are primary cells that have a high potential for debris and cell aggregates, which make traditional hemocytometer/trypan counting difficult. Dual fluorescence counting has greatly improved our accuracy and reliability. We also love being able to digitally archive the images/count reports for later reference. The instrument controls are intuitive and allow for manual focusing of the cell images. Our service rep has been very quick to address our after-sales needs. The Luna-FL is the most affordable instrument that meets our needs (and often exceeds them!). Would recommend."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Mammalian and Insect cell counting and analysis for protein production.

"Very easy to use and packaged into a much smaller size than its competitors! Gives consistent and accurate results particularly for cell size which is essential for our work on insect cells. It is also able to detect very small mammalian cell lines which has proved to be invaluable. The liquid lense focussing system is instantaneous and requires very little manual adjustment."

"The Luna Cell Counter is easy to adjust and to use to obtain reproducible results. The high-resolution quality of the bright field and fluorescent images allows efficient and quick analysis of the cell count and cell viability. Once the parameters are set it is possible to obtain a robust read-out independent of the cell morphology. We use the Luna-FL Dual Fluorescence Cell counter every day and it facilitates fast and user-friendly application. It is possible to save the bright field and fluorescent images on a portable drive for further quantification."

"I am the lead lab technician for a clinical laboratory specializing in ELISPOT assays. The LUNA-II brings fast, accurate, and consistent results, perfect for a high throughput lab. We are a start up company and funding is limited, so the affordability of the LUNA-II was a huge plus. Reusable slides can be purchased and trypan blue is very affordable, making the running costs next to nothing. The instrument itself is very easy to use and setting adjustment allows you to set your parameters to exactly how you need them. This instrument is a must have for start up companies who need fast and accurate cell counting."

"The LUNA-II™ Automated Cell Counter is very easy to use and definetely worth it for any lab which needs to count their cells. It saves much time counting cells and is very precise. By setting the background and changing the counting program (which can be saved) for each cell type that is being counted, the cell counts become very sensitive and precise. Really easy to use, also with gloves on."

  • Application Area:Counting cells either by trypan blue or AO.

"It's a compact device useful for cell counting but the camera and software can be much far better in this area of time as we have better resolution camera that can be fancy and much useful with cheaper price. In comparison to other cell counting device, it is comparable. There is a negative point of the design of the slide for cell counting about the depth that can focus better on nuclei counting. It can be faster and much reliable on the stability of the camera focus point for the next usage with the same cell line."

"The Luna-FL Dual Fluorescence Cell Counter is one of my favorite machines in our lab. It lets me acquire cell counts so quickly so I can go on with my bench work. Not only are we able to count but we can look at other statistics like viability and average cell size with just the push of a button. The best part about this counter is the accuracy. I am able to reliably count every cell line that I put in, and am able to do it again the next day. I'm so glad we have this system in our lab because counting with trypan blue would take much longer! Overall, I would recommend this product to another lab that is doing a lot of work with cell lines in order to get a quick and accurate count."

Great cell counter, robust re-usable slides, incredible customer support!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell biology

"We purchased this cell counter for our busy tissue culture facility. We needed a machine that is easy to use, fast, provides good reproducible results and offers the possibility to save funds on consumables by using re-usable counting slides instead of disposable ones. LUNA-FL has all these features. The interface is user-friendly, the counter is easy to use with minimum training required and the results are almost immediate, clear and very reproducible. Moreover, users have appreciated the fluorescence function too. It gives a very quick and clear idea of the efficiency of transfection experiments. The possibility to use a re-usable slide with this counter has reduced our expenses towards consumables by an incredible amount. In general, we are very happy with our purchase. A final note has to be made for the incredible support of the customer service: we had a very useful demonstration of the machine, which was left at our facility for a month for trial, without any obligation of purchase. We had an initial big discount for the purchase of two machines, which included two re-usable slides free of charge. When our re-usable slides broke, Logos was upgrading the design and in the meantime we were offered disposable slides free of charge. We have been using the upgraded design for months now, without any problems."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analysis of cells in animal tissue preparations

"We use LUNA-FL cell counter for analysis of mouse tissue preparations and primary cell cultures. Our samples include: lung homogenates, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, T cells culture, etc. Acridine orange/propidium iodide dual staining is particularly beneficial for evaluation of samples contaminated with red blood cells. This approach is fast (analysis conducted immediately after addition of dyes) and more precise than methods utilizing trypan blue staining. Wide detection range and availability of re-usable slides are another advantages of LUNA FL. Major disadvantages include: no internal memory, only one USB port - precluding simultaneous use of pendrive (for saving results) and printer, long-lasting saving of results, lack of automatic focusing."

  • Application Area:Insect Cell Counting and assess viability

"We are using Luna-FL for counting mostly insect cells during the maintenance and expansion of the cell cultures. It`s operation is very straightforward once the settings are customized according to the cell type. Compared to bright light, fluorescence counting results in much more accurate (up to 10 million cells/ml) and reproducible results. With reusable slide, we don’t have to set focusing every time. It takes a minute or so to get the cell count and viability. Just in case, we always check the tagged cells under bright light and we don’t see any unlabeled or mislabeled cells, independent of cell size or cell clustering."

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"Efficient, fast and true-to-life device for counting cells. The only negative point is the lack of choice of the "with or without blue" parameter when creating a counting program. Moreover, there is nothing on the home screen to know if the trypan blue parameter is activated or not and we must check each time, in the parameters of the device, the count with or without blue trypan before we do our counting. A small suggestion would be to have more on the home screen (top right accompanying the name of the selected program for example), a blue trypan icon checked or not to have a quick information on this parameter."

"Device is really easy to use. Providing a reusable blade is a real advantage when you have a very frequent use of the device, it reduces the cost of consumables. The data obtained is reliable and reproducible. Small disadvantage: for some lines, the device does not seem to count correctly (low cell concentration and very low viability obtained on LunaII compared to the results obtained in cell Malassez). Perhaps it is due to the fact that these cells are deformed base? For having the ability to use another cell counter of another brand, the count on the LunaII is two to three times longer. But the team and I are nevertheless satisfied with the product!"

Review date: 01 Jul 2013 | LUNA™ Automated Cell Counter

Cell counting is a fundamental quality control procedure in research. It’s simple, straightforward, but it’s also error-prone, time-consuming, and highly subjective.
