Very powerful machine
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Count the cells for experiment

"This machine is very precise, I can count very few cells after cell extraction from the biopsies, I also used this counter to plate after transfection so I need to have a precise number of cells, the counting is very quick and you can count different type of cells without effort. Is very practical because you can register your counting or print for report, and also you can see the cells with the screen."

Easy to use, fast and relevant counting device.
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."

Very good product
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"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!"

Fast and accurate cell counting!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"We've had this product in the lab for about 2 years now and I have to say it really improved the cell culture experience. It makes cell counting more precise, something we tested at the beginning. It gives accurate cell number, avoiding the counting by eye. Also, preparing samples and loading them is fast and easy, so you can count several cell lines in just few minutes. The after sales care have always been available whenever we had questions, which is always valuable. All in all, I am truly thankful we get to have this product in the lab, it really makes our work easier."

Rapide, simple, reliable.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"This product is easy to use. The fact that one can use a reusable blade is an advantage in terms of cost when one line is to be counted. The results are reliable, we have compared them to those obtained in Molasses cells, against the concentration must be close to 1x10 ^ 6 cells / mL. I am very satisfied with this purchase, which is unanimous within the team."

The LUNA-II™ automated cell counter has integrated a novel focusing mechanism based on liquid lens technology.

The liquid lens does not use any mechanical moving parts to change the Z stage. Instead, the Z position of the sample is rapidly obtained by the application of a small voltage to the liquid lens. The elimination of moving parts removes noise and significantly reduces the need for servicing. Even after multi-million cycles of focusing, the liquid lens does not require repair or service. 

In combination with this novel focusing mechanism, the LUNA-II™ has integrated a new autofocusing algorithm optimized for cell counting. The LUNA-II™ automated cell counting algorithm has been recognized to have the best-in-class cell counting accuracy. 

Key Features:

  • Reduced counting costs
  • Increased convenience
  • Erythrosin B and Trypan Blue-Compatible
