WHAT THE LUNA-II™ DOES BEST

Discover more

The LUNA-II™ is an automated cell counter that gives you the ultimate brightfield cell counting experience. Press count and the LUNA-II™ does the rest – bringing your cells into the sharpest focus, adjusting light levels, capturing a high-resolution image, and analyzing the image to produce accurate cell count and viability data. You can create custom, cell-specific cell counting protocols or simply use the default counting protocol suitable for most cell lines. Live cells are tagged with green circles and dead cells are tagged with red circles, making it easy to verify the accuracy of each count. The LUNA-II™ sits comfortably in a cell culture hood or on your benchtop to fit seamlessly into your workflow.

15 Seconds to Target

AUTOFOCUSED COUNTING IN 15 SECONDS

The automated cell counter LUNA II has integrated a novel focussing mechanism based on liquid lenses technology.

The liquid lenses do not use any mechanical moving parts to change the Z stage.

Instead, the 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 of servicing. Even after multi-million cycles of focussing, the liquid lens does not require repair or service.

In combination with this novel focussing mechanism, the LUNA II has integrated a new autofocusing algorithm optimized for cell counting

ACCURATE VIABILITY DATA

The LUNA-II™ can precisely and consistently distinguish live and dead cells from debris.

SOFTWARE

De-clustering

The LUNA II cell counting algorithm has been recognized to have the best-in-class cell counting accuracy. The LUNA II software has exceptional accuracy in cell de-clustering and can successfully count clumpy cells. The LUNA II automated cell counter has inherited this well-known performance aspect of the LUNA software.

Clumpy cells are de-clustered quickly, as well as automatically counted as individual cells

Tracey Geneau

Greenfield Ethanol

I'm testing the LUNA-II and it works great. I work for an ethanol plant and our operators count yeast. This will be a great way to streamline the yeast count results. It will also please our operators.

This is a nice automated cell counter that is well worth considering. We count cells to set up experiments with a consistent number of input cells and to express the resulting data accurately. An automated cell counter makes this a quick, painless, reproducible process. Tip: get the one with the printer!

Clémence Jacquemin

PhD INSERM

Rapid, simple, reliable. 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.

Fantastic easy to use machine
The LUNA-II is a fantastic product that has allowed me to create reproducible experiments within my cell culture. The instrument is extremely easy to use with a user friendly interface as well as appropriate complementary instructions online. The machine has never had any issues or faults after over a year of heavy use and as such I have recommended it to other labs with heavy tissue culture usage!
