Product Overview

LUNA is an automated, stand-alone cell counter that provides fast and accurate cell count and viability results.

In as little as 7 seconds, high-resolution brightfield images of cells are analysed to provide total, live and dead cell counts  LUNA can accurately measure total cell count for unstained cells and provide cell viability data for cells stained with trypan blue or erythrosin B. 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.

Innovative software can quickly de-cluster and automatically count cell clumps and analyse them as single cells, doublets, or triplets. With the LUNA automated cell counter you can count cells with cell sizes ranging from 3 to 60 μm cell diameter. 

Designed for cost-efficient and accurate cell counting the LUNA automated cell counter is compatible with both reusable and disposable cell counting slides to maintain the highest standard of cell counting accuracy.

The LUNA family of automated counters has been awarded a Platinum seal of quality from SelectScience in recognition of outstanding feedback received from scientists globally – one of just 6 winners since the awards were launched in 2017! 




Get concentration and viability data in as little as 7 seconds, five times faster than other cell counters.

LUNA can precisely and consistently distinguish live and dead cells from debris.

An advanced declustering algorithm detects individual cells in clusters.

Customise and save protocols, verify results immediately onboard, use the dilution calculator, and gate cells on histograms with a few taps on the LUNA touchscreen.

Print data with am external printer or export high-resolution images, data, and full data reports via USB.

Perfect for labs on a budget, the LUNA works with the LUNA Reusable Slide,  delivering the affordability of manual cell counting without the associated time, subjectivity, and user-to-user variability. The disposable LUNA Cell Counting Slides offer accurate cell counting with no mess or cleanup.


LUNA offers accurate, reliable cell counting of live, dead and clustered cells.

Applications include Primary cells (Splenocyte, Thymocyte, PBMC, Monocyte, Lymphocyte, Neuronal cell, Keratinocyte, Epithelial cell, Dendritic cell, etc), Cancer cells, Stem cells, Adipocytes, Sperm cells, Somatic cells in milk, Algae, Yeasts and more.
