Luna™ is an automated cell counter that accurately measures cell number and viability for various purposes. Incorporating many innovations introduced by Logos Biosystems, Luna™ provides you with an accurate, fast, easy and affordable cell counting experience. Accelerate your research with the most advanced technology.
Luna™ automated cell counter gives you the accurate live/dead cell counting results within 7 seconds. Based on the precision optical design and the new software algorithm, the cell counting accuracy is unsurpassed. Within a 5x104 ~ 1x107 cells/ml concentration range and 3 ~ 60μm cell diameter, Luna™ software accurately detects live/dead cells, and discriminates cell debris. Individual cells in cell clusters are also successfully counted by Luna’s new de-clustering algorithm.
The Luna™ Automated Cell Counter demonstrates accurate cell counts across an extended range of cell concentration
The Luna™ Automated Cell Counter demonstrates accurate viability result. The hemocytometer and the Luna™ Cell Counter showed an excellent correlation without statistically significant differences
Minimal counting cost
Automated cell counters utilize disposable counting slides to eliminate washing steps of manual cell counting with glass hemocytometer.
Logos Biosystems has developed innovative T-Bond™ technology (patent-pending) to manufacture the precision cell counting slides more efficiently. The unit price of slide is almost half of the other brands, saving significant consumable costs for heavy users.

Shortest time to result, less than 7 seconds
All image-based cell counters utilize image analysis software to extract and analyze live/dead features of cells. During this analysis process, color information is changed to binary (black & white) information, and the features such as brightness, circularity, and diameter are extracted and analyzed. With old algorithms, this process usually takes more than 30 seconds. However, Luna™ has integrated faster computing power and the most advanced cell detection algorithm to reduce the analysis time. It only takes less than 7 seconds by Luna™ Cell Counter, which is approx. 5 times faster than other cell counters.
Interactive software interface
On-board monitoring of counted cells
After you performed the cell counting, you can immediately monitor which cells are counted as live or dead on the Luna™ Cell Counter screen. Green and red circles indicates each live and dead cell. You don’t need additional PC software to check the counting result.
The cell counting result can be saved as a high resolution TIFF image file and/or PDF-format report file to the USB drive. Luna™ Cell Counter provides re-analysis options for the saved image file. Whenever you want to perform the re-counting, you can do it again and again with the saved cell images.
Touch screen interface
The Luna™ automated cell counter is a stand-alone compact instrument operated by touch screen interface. Its interactive operation by finger gesture will let you easily obtain accurate cell counting results
