I love the LUNA-FL counter. It’s so easy to use and it’s fast – which is important for my applications when I can’t have cells on ice for too long. I love the fact that there are multiple counting modes (dual fluorescence or brightfield) and you can set it up to use your custom stains. Getting practically instant cell counts with viability and dilution calculations done automatically is excellent. The other huge advantage over other automated counting systems is that you can visualize your cells on the screen to ensure they’re healthy and spot any anomalies, which you can’t do with cuvette based counters for example. It’s also great that it stores all the data and can export it to USB, including cell images too. Very easy to calibrate, also.
