The LUNA-FL™ Dual Fluorescence Cell Counter is a highly sensitive dual fluorescence automated cell counter. The LUNA-FL™  can even detect and accurately measure the count and viability of primary cells such as PBMCs, splenocytes, neutrophils, and stem cells, cells which are normally difficult to count with conventional brightfield counters.  The LUNA-FL™ is equipped with dual fluorescence optics to accurately distinguish between live cells, dead cells, and debris.

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Fluorescence cell counting

"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."

Great for primary cells
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:Stem cell cell counts

"Our Luna Cell Counter was having some issues right out of the box. I communicated this to Logos and within the hour, I received a call to help troubleshoot. After attempting to troubleshoot and realizing the attempt was futile, Logos offered to send a replacement instrument within the week. I was extremely impressed by the customer service and I would absolutely buy from Logos again. The company takes pride in their instruments and was professional, courteous and fast to help!"

Rating: 5.0

  • 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."

Fast and accurate cell viability and counts.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell Counting of Monodisperse and Aggregated Cells

"The Luna FL's strength is in the viability accuracy, as well as being able to differentiate aggregated cells from single large cells due to the nature of the dual fluorescent dye. I use this machine constantly with cell culture and its speed, ease of use, cost, and small footprint were the major factors in purchasing this over another fluorescent counting option."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"It's very convenient to use, accurate and fast. The LUNA-FL can distinguish primary cells such as PBMCs, DCs from debris that's why we upgraded from the "classic Luna" to the Luna-FL. It's very helpful because we are not limited by cell type or size. In addition, the price is suitable so we're very pleased by that cell counter."
