Solid machine, requires little bench space and is very accurate.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Human PBMC counts

"The LUNA-II provides rapid and accurate cell counts. We often rely on the LUNA-II when processing many samples at a time. It helps to reduce sampling error, reduce processing times, and improve counting accuracy. The LUNA-II has built in calculators to help with achieving wanted cell concentrations (for if you are feeling extra lazy). Overall, this product works and intended and is very easy to use. A+ in our lab."

Extremely affordable, accurate, and fast cell counting.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Peripheral blood mononuclear cell counting

"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."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Counting number and viability of PBMC's

"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."

"Our lab (Louisiana State University's department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) bought the Logos Luna II cell counter for the purpose of counting amoeba and measuring its viability after disinfection experiments. It has been incredibly easy to use and does its job well (and honestly has saved me tons of time that I can devote to other graduate student responsibilities). Not only has it helped me count my amoeba, it has helped the other grad and undergrad students in our lab for counting E. Coli. Thanks!"

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."

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."

Review date: 24 Jul 2018 | LUNA-II™ Automated Cell Counter

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
