This product is very effective and easy to use. I love using it to determine viability and count cells. I have had no problems with this product. I highly recommend it to everyone who needs to count cells.

Easy and fast to use!
This cell counter is very easy to use. It gives fast and accurate counting results. Has both brightfield and fluorescence counting which becomes very useful when working with transfections.

This product is easy to use. The slides are disposable, which is very fast and convenient. I have never had any issues with these slides. The company sent them very fast, and updated my order every step of the way! Thank you!

Robust results. Quicker than manual counting but far more expensive.
I was able to obtain good agreement between the PI channel of the Luna FL and my own manual haemocytometer counting of nuclei stained with DAPI at a fraction of the time. One caveat would be false ‘viability’ given from background staining of AO on tissue debris but it could be useful in determining the level of debris from the isolation.
Great results much easier than the equipment this product replaced.
The Luna was easy to use, results were reproducible. The save image feature worked very well for separating counts for various groups, making it easier to organize data in excel.

Great overall system for the cost.
This system is effective in counting cells/mL for Protozoa cells dyed with trypan blue. Images can be saved and reviewed for manual counts. This gives the user a good idea of how to experiment with parameter specifications for even more accuracy. The cell count data excel file needs to be labeled properly by the user in order to effectively analyze data quantitatively. The end user needs to demo the system and figure this out on their own. An overall great system for quick accurate counts at cost.
Reliable and time saving device.
Excellent device, produces reliable cell counts and saves you a lot of time with a good workflow.

Great results, can’t live without this machine.
Other cell counters (trypan blue method) sometimes detected debris, but Luna fL can use AO/PI, so it does not detect debris. The reproducibility of the AO/PI method is high, which is very useful for experiments. It would be great if there was autofocus, as it would be troublesome to manually focus each cell count.
