Laboratory Instruments / Logos Biosystems Automated Cell Counter
Yeast Cell Counter LUNA-II YF™
As is well-known in brewing and winemaking industries, the quantity of yeast pitched to initiate fermentation directly affects the flavor, aroma, and quality of the final product. Although yeast can be pitched by weight or volume, such methods are inexact and highly variable. The ASBC method using methylene blue method is more accurate but time consuming and subjective. Use the LUNA-II YF™ to get accurate and reproducible yeast cell counts in as little as 15 seconds. This little counter sits comfortably in a cell culture hood or on your benchtop to fit seamlessly into your workflow
THE LOWEST COST. THE GREATEST CONVENIENCE.
Perfect for labs on a budget, our LUNA™ family of automated cell counters work with the LUNA™ Reusable Slide. The LUNA™ Reusable Slide delivers the affordability of manual cell counting without the associated time, subjectivity, and user-to-user variability. Our disposable slides offer the ultimate counting experience. With no mess or cleanup, these precision slides are convenient and maintain the highest standard of cell counting accuracy.
SPECIFIC AND OPTIMIZED ANALYSIS
We’ve independently tested 30+ brewing yeast products on the LUNA-II YF™.
