Trust what you see!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Immune cells

"One of the most easy to use cell counters I have used so far. The quality of the images stored after counting is as good as seeing through BF microscope. Even clustered cells are well analyzed for cell counting. Higher number of fields and cells taken in to account for precise cell counting."

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."

Easy to use and trustworthy results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting, viability assessement

"The device is user friendly, provide relatively fast and very accurate results. It works for all kind of cell types, adherent and suspension cell lines, CD34, PBMCs... The algorithm is doing a fantastic job to discriminate healthy from dead cells and it is amazing how it can accurately count cells even in cell aggregates. Pretty good interface to see, manage and export your data (including Wifi connection)."

Review date: 04 Nov 2020 | LUNA-FX7™ Automated Cell Counter

Introducing the LUNA-FX7™ - the newest member of the award-winning LUNA™ Cell Counter family. The LUNA-FX7™ is our most powerful cell counter to date, with unmatched cell counting accuracy, new 1, 3 and 8-chamber slide options, state of the art optics, dual fluorescent and brightfield detection, precision autofocus, and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. The LUNA-FX7™ has built-in quality control features and new validation slides for monitoring QC and production. By combining the trademark ease of use characteristic of all LUNA™ counters with the enhanced accuracy, higher throughput, and software upgrades - the LUNA-FX7™ will improve the efficiency and security of your lab's workflow.

Ending the accuracy debate

  • Incomparable accuracy: The debate on the gold standard in cell counting accuracy still ranges between manual counting and automated counting. The impact of counting volume on the accuracy and precision of cell counting is often overlooked. The LUNA-FX7™ has a maximum counting volume of 5.1 µL. Manual counting and most other automated cell counters use a counting volume less than 0.5 µL. The 10X greater counting volume of the LUNA-FX7™ makes it one of the most accurate automated counting devices on the market. The LUNA-FX7™ will end this debate.

Reliable results across a wide concentration range

  • Meeting demand: Researchers across the globe have spoken and demanded an extremely accurate cell counter that has a fast and reliable autofocusing ability that can produce high quality images. The state-of-the-art optical system, superior dynamic range, and advanced delcustering algorithm allow the LUNA-FX7™ to meet this demand.
  • Diverse cell counting applications: The LUNA-FX7™'s broad cell detection range, 1 x 10E4 cells/mL - 5 x 10E7 cells/mL eliminates the need to dilute or concentrate samples, making the LUNA-FX7™ suitable for diverse cell counting applications including single-cell sequencing and CAR-T cell therapy.

Convenient and high-speed workflow

  • As easy as 1-2-3: With a highly intuitive user interface, the LUNA-FX7™ eliminates unnecessary operations. In THREE easy steps, the precise autofocus feature produces accurate and reliable results in less time. LOAD – COUNT – READ RESULTS. It’s that easy. The LUNA-FX7™ truly streamlines workflow creating an efficiently run lab with exceptionally accurate data. 

Simple optimization & data management

  • Manage your data with precision: With brightfield and dual fluorescent detection options, multiple counting modes and customizable protocols, the LUNA-FX7™ gives you control over your data. You have the flexibility to optimize for your cell and sample type with the assurance of built-in quality control features. 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

  • Cell monitoring: The LUNA-FX7™ offers a bioprocess mode that monitors cell health and growth and tracks bioprocessing activities. By easily tagging a batch to a specific protocol, the progression of multiple batches may be monitored. The Bioprocess application calculates doubling times and charts proliferation curves, allowing you to trace the production and health of your cells. With up to a terabyte of internal storage, the LUNA-FX7™can store days, weeks, months, and years of counting results. Cell numbers, concentrations and viabilities are provided with a single tap on the screen.

Quality control - trust in your data

  • Innovation at your fingertips: Our innovative quality control feature ensures that you can be confident in your data. In conjunction with our fluorescent or brightfield validation slides, the QC functions allow you to store, monitor, and analyze instrument performance over time. The QC features allow you to establish and adhere to the most rigorous QA/QC criteria.

CountWire™ - FDA 21 CFR Par 11 ready

  • FDA regulation ready: The LUNA-FX7™ is equipped with the innovative CountWire™ software. With user-accessibility management including encrypted activity logs, the LUNA-FX7™ delivers data securely and in compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations and GMP requirements.
  • The LUNA-FX7™ is equipped with the innovative CountWire™ software. With user-accessibility management including encrypted activity logs, the LUNA-FX7™ delivers data securely and in compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations and GMP requirements.
