A life saver for researchers who need to perform daily cell counting work!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell and nucleus counting from various types of samples

"The Luna FX7 provides several types of counting chamber to meet our needs. With the high throughput 8 chamber slides, we are able to receive accurate counting results within a few minutes. Unlike other cell counters, the Luna FX7 can read several chambers of the slide at the same time, without ejecting the slide, reversing it and inserting it over and over. Also the user interface is straight forward and easy to use. Even sharing the device with different groups, we have no problem applying our own counting parameters and exporting the counting report. I highly recommend this device to cell biology labs."

A Game-Changer for sn-RNA-seq
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Single nuclei concentration and quality analysis for sn-RNA-seq

"LUNA-FX7 is an invaluable tool for single nuclei counting and quality analysis in sn-RNA-seq experiments. Its accuracy, user-friendly interface, and data visualization capabilities have transformed our workflow, saving us time and providing reliable results. All the staff scientists and students learned how to use it in no time. The results are highly reproducible and much more reliable compared to traditional counting methods such as Neubauer plate which are highly susceptible to human errors. The software identifies and counts the single nuclei, literally saving us hours of manual labor while providing precise and reliable results. The software's exceptional customer support further enhances the overall experience. I wholeheartedly recommend LUNA-FX7 to any researcher looking to elevate their sn-RNA-seq studies."

"The instrument is super easy to use also with very complex and heterogeneous samples. We use it to check the quality of samples that were then used in a single-cell workflow experiment. Really useful also to check nuclei isolated from frozen samples or count difficult types of samples as hepatocytes, known to cluster in small groups. the use of the Luna FX7 increased the performance of our single-cell experiment and allowed us to develop a new protocol for the isolation of different types of cells."

Significantly improved work efficiency!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Evaluation of cell number and viability of PBMC-T cells and differentiated induced cells from iPS c

"Our laboratory previously used a Thermo Fisher cell counting machine. Due to the increased use of the equipment, we decided to purchase a new cell counter and purchased the LUNA FX7. What is especially nice about this equipment is that it can measure up to eight samples at once! In addition, even small, difficult-to-focus cells such as PBMC-T cells can now be measured automatically without difficulty. Previously, we had to manually adjust the focus and could only measure two samples at a time, so this is a wonderful advancement in this equipment. The sales support representatives are also very helpful. I would purchase another one in addition."

Accurate counts for hard to count cell types
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell Culture

"We primarily do cardiomyocyte differentiations from iPSCs. This system, with the Acridine Orange/Propidium iodide stain, lets us count cardiomyocytes with much more accuracy than our previous Countess system. This has greatly enahnced our quality control and the reproducibility of the experiments. Software is easy to use. Very nice piece of equipment, if a little on the expensive side. Overall, the improvements are worth the price."

End of "focus-count-save" repetition when having lot of samples and gives consistant results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyzing cell suspensions for single cell analysis

"Device has been easy to use, and simple for a new user. Autofocus works nicely which is important to us; we need consistant results because different people run cell counting as a first step of single cell analysis. Algorithm seems to work accurately as it differentiates between actual cells and cell debris or other particles. Counting with the 8-chamber slide is quite consistant, you just have to pay attention to even pipetting. Measuring with the 8-chamber slide is super easy and quick compared to Luna-stem that we used to use. Getting 8 counts and also saving all the files with two keystrokes frees you to do something else while the counter is running. Only one thing I would change: It would be good to have some kind of a note on screen when the file has been saved. It often happens that I automatically press "save", then go to do something else and when I come back, don't remember if I actually did press the key. When re-saving, the application does not warn you that the same file is already saved and you end up with double files. Not a big problem though."

The re-analysis feature lets you easily review and analyze previous counts using different protocol settings providing more options for data parsing. Counting results can be transferred and saved by USB, WiFi or Ethernet connection. In addition, results may be exported as a CSV summary or a comprehensive PDF report with raw and tagged images. 

Simple slide handling - one & done

  • Versatile slide options: The LUNA-FX7™ can accommodate multiple slide options. For maximum throughput, there is an 8-channel slide that is multi-channel pipette compatible. For data organization and convenience, there is a 3-channel slide. For optimal accuracy and precision, there is a single channel slide with a 5.1 µL counting volume. With 'One and Done' slide insertion, simply insert a slide once, and the LUNA-FX7™ will count all chambers - without need to remove and reinsert the slide.

Unique bioprocess mode
