- Andrew Cassar
University of Malta
Good results, will be published soon.
This product had made cell counting easy rather than counting it under the microscope as we used to do back in the day. After preparing the sample we easily loaded it into the slide chamber. It also tags which cells are live and dead to be easy for the user to count. since it is done through imaging and focus. The user only has to adjust some minor settings for accurate counting like other instruments. Overall, this is a great product.
- Kaylie Schneider
The main cell counter that we use before single cell RNAseq. Seems to give consistent results and accurate counts/viabilities.
Easy to use and relatively quick.
- Kevin Miller
Easy, accurate cell counting.
This product has made cell counting such an easy process! After preparing the sample, it is loaded into the slide chamber, inserted into the LUNA-FL, and then counted. Learning to use the equipment was quick, and the default setting has worked well in our lab. Assessing the quality of the count is also easily done through imaging and focus. Overall, this is a great product.
- Fei Miao

Great results in short time given a proper starting set-up.
I used the LUNA system to estimate cell density and cell viability. In both cases, once the protocol is well defined and the experimental conditions extremely standardized, the system works very efficiently. It is less efficient in a non laboratory conditions.
- Sivaraman Natarajan
I have been using this LUNA counter for the last 3 years, it's simple and easy.
The accuracy of cell count is very important for single-cell genomics experiments, in our hands the LUNA is very reliable and repeatable.
- Cécile Conrad
Cell counter very convenient to use, accurate and fast.
It's very convenient to use, accurate and fast. The LUNA-FL can distinguish primary cells such as PBMCs, DCs from debris that's why we upgraded from the "classic LUNA" to the LUNA-FL. It's very helpful because we are not limited by cell type or size. In addition, the price is suitable so we're very pleased by that cell counter.
- Cécile Apolit
An essential instrument for our studies.
We acquired the LUNA-FL in 2017 to replace an old cell counter and we are totally satisfied. We like: -Ease of use -The ability to specifically count PBMCs -The speed and availability of after-sales service -The price very correct.
- Corinne Rolland
We are satisfied with the LUNA-FL.
The cell counter LUNA-FL is remarkably easy to use, fast and reliable; with a reactivity of the after-sales service. We are totally satisfied with the LUNA-FL.
- Clayton Wandishin
Fast and accurate cell viability and counts.
The LUNA-FL's strength is in the viability accuracy, as well as being able to differentiate aggregated cells from single large cells due to the nature of the dual fluorescent dye. I use this machine constantly with cell culture and its speed, ease of use, cost, and small footprint were the major factors in purchasing this over another fluorescent counting option.
- Cem Sonmez
Peace of mind progress with cell counting.
We are using the LUNA-FL for counting mostly insect cells during the maintenance and expansion of the cell cultures. It`s operation is very straightforward once the settings are customized according to the cell type. Compared to bright light, fluorescence counting results in much more accurate (up to 10 million cells/ml) and reproducible results. With reusable slide, we don’t have to set focusing every time. It takes a minute or so to get the cell count and viability. Just in case, we always check the tagged cells under bright light and we don’t see any unlabeled or mislabeled cells, independent of cell size or cell clustering.
- Sarah Kristian
IU School of Medicine
Amazing customer service, love the instrument.
Our LUNA-FL Cell Counter was having some issues right out of the box. I communicated this to Logos and within the hour, I received a call to help troubleshoot. After attempting to troubleshoot and realizing the attempt was futile, Logos offered to send a replacement instrument within the week. I was extremely impressed by the customer service and I would absolutely buy from Logos again. The company takes pride in their instruments and was professional, courteous and fast to help!
- Tadeusz Karcz
Great for primary cells.
We use the LUNA-FL cell counter for analysis of mouse tissue preparations and primary cell cultures. Our samples include: lung homogenates, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, T cells culture, etc. Acridine orange/propidium iodide dual staining is particularly beneficial for evaluation of samples contaminated with red blood cells. This approach is fast (analysis conducted immediately after addition of dyes) and more precise than methods utilizing trypan blue staining. Wide detection range and availability of re-usable slides are another advantages of the LUNA-FL. Major disadvantages include: no internal memory, only one USB port - precluding simultaneous use of pendrive (for saving results) and printer, long-lasting saving of results, lack of automatic focusing.
- Laura Fin
MRC-PPU, University of Dundee
Great cell counter, robust re-usable slides, incredible customer support!
We purchased this cell counter for our busy tissue culture facility. We needed a machine that is easy to use, fast, provides good reproducible results and offers the possibility to save funds on consumables by using re-usable counting slides instead of disposable ones. The LUNA-FL has all these features. The interface is user-friendly, the counter is easy to use with minimum training required and the results are almost immediate, clear and very reproducible. Moreover, users have appreciated the fluorescence function too. It gives a very quick and clear idea of the efficiency of transfection experiments. The possibility to use a re-usable slide with this counter has reduced our expenses towards consumables by an incredible amount. In general, we are very happy with our purchase. A final note has to be made for the incredible support of the customer service: we had a very useful demonstration of the machine, which was left at our facility for a month for trial, without any obligation of purchase. We had an initial big discount for the purchase of two machines, which included two re-usable slides free of charge. When our re-usable slides broke, Logos was upgrading the design and in the meantime we were offered disposable slides free of charge. We have been using the upgraded design for months now, without any problems.
- Larriana.S Saskironi

Try it and determine if it will works fine for you application. Helpful and handy!
It's a compact device useful for cell counting but the camera and software can be much far better in this area of time as we have better resolution camera that can be fancy and much useful with cheaper price. In comparison to other cell counting device, it is comparable. There is a negative point of the design of the slide for cell counting about the depth that can focus better on nuclei counting. It can be faster and much reliable on the stability of the camera focus point for the next usage with the same cell line.
- Satomi Iwahashi

I have used other counters but this one surpasses them all. We are very happy that we introduced it into our lab. Highly recommended!
- Gabrielle Cannon
Ensures scRNA-Seq Success.
This instrument has been indispensable for our single cell RNA-Seq sample prep process. Most of our samples are primary cells that have a high potential for debris and cell aggregates, which make traditional hemocytometer/trypan counting difficult. Dual fluorescence counting has greatly improved our accuracy and reliability. We also love being able to digitally archive the images/count reports for later reference. The instrument controls are intuitive and allow for manual focusing of the cell images. Our service rep has been very quick to address our after-sales needs. The LUNA-FL is the most affordable instrument that meets our needs (and often exceeds them!). Would recommend.
- Kathy Evans
DUKE INTERNAL MEDICINE ONCOLOGY
Accurate and easy to use.
We are a research lab that does in vitro and in vivo immunological studies. Viability and accurate cell counts are extremely important to our studies. The LUNA-FL is extremely user friendly and easy to switch from brightfield to fluorescence to GFP. The option to use a resusable slide also makes this instrument cost effective when only counting one sample. It takes up very little bench space and fits in our small tissue culture room where space is a premium. The ability to demo the LUNA instruments side by side for as long as we needed was a must for us and Logos allowed us the time and support to test all counting methods completely.
- Kevin De Muynck
Fast, rapid, reliable counting with AO/PI.
From 10 ml whole blood it is estimated to obtain roughly 10 million PBMCs. When counting with the LUNA-FL with the AO/PI stain, we indeed see total cell counts approximating what we expected from what is known. This system in combo with this dye mix offers a fast, reliable solution to count PBMCs.
- Samson Omole
Easy to use, saves time and is very efficient.
The equipment is very reliable with great accuracy and precision. It is user friendly and it is easy to use. In my former lab, we counted cells via microscope using the counting chamber with which it was very difficult to identify dead cells. With this equipment my job has been made easy.
- Jaeda Roberts
Easy to use!
The cell counter is easy to use, great for teaching, and very accurate most of the time. Use the bright field setting and the fluorescent setting most frequently and am satisfied with both.
- Patrick Mccarthy
Very accurate and easy to use.
The LUNA-FL Dual Fluorescence Cell Counter is very fast and easy to use. Our lab utilizes this instrument to count multiple cell types of different sizes; I much prefer it to a hemocytometer. The LUNA-FL is small and easily fits on our bench top. The counting and viability data is accurate and reproducible.
- Colleen Olkowski

- Nicholas Wameling
Best cell counting instrument on the market!
We use our LUNA-FL Dual Fluorescence Cell Counter every day for our flow assays and other duties. The first thing I noticed about the LUNA-FL is that it is very easy to use. Sometimes we are counting multiple cell types and the LUNA-FL is quick and very accurate. The LUNA cell counting slides we use are double sided, which helps to reduce waste, and they are of high quality. Overall this product has no flaws in my opinion.
- Nicholas LeFlohic
Great results and takes no time at all to use!
The Cell Counter is effective for allowing us to make better use of our time instead of using manual counting methods like the hemacytometer. There is some variability to the results, however they are for the most part consistent. The Cell Counter is intuitive in its interface and easy to operate with minimal training. One should be mindful of dilutions. So far we've had no problem (sourced to the equipment) and have had many instances of its reliable use.
- Christoph Hapke
Charité Comprehensive Cancer Center
Good results, easy to use.
The LUNA-FL is a very compact, lightweight device with an intuitive user interface that only requires minimal training. We use it every day for live/dead cell counting and are satisfied with the results. Logos offers disposable slides for high-throughput but also reusable ones for smaller labs (with a little effort you can also reuse the disposable ones but you didn't hear that from me). Preparation of slides with AO/PI takes about 1 minute.

Accurate results, easy to use, great sales and follow up support.
We purchased the Logos Biosystems LUNA-FL cell counter to quantitate human T lymphocytes and other cell types. This was early 2020, so most everything was shut down due to the pandemic, but we needed a good cell counter for SARS-CoV-2 research. To test if the instrument would meet our needs, Logos shipped us a demo to try out. The machine is very easy to use, accurate, and provides lots of supplemental data beyond just cell number. The LUNA-FL cost a bit more than some comparable counters, but less than others. The sales support and flexibility was what really stood out and sold our lab. The disposable slides can get expensive when performing many counts, but that's a common refrain for most counters. To save on the costs of consumables, I recommend buying straight from Logos; reusable slides also exist. All-in-all, this instrument, and the support behind it, have met our lab's needs well. We're happy and without complaints.
- Claire Morton
Great bit of kit.
The LUNA-FL cell counter is a great bit of kit, it has really saved us a lot of time in the lab. It's compact, space saving and intuitive. It's great having the flexibility of having both brightfield and fluorescence cell counting in one machine.
- Kevin Lee
Great. Easy to use.
- Mike Licudi
Imperial College London
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.
- Hugo Sugier
Great device, user-friendly and time saving.
We use this cell counter to count THP1 cell lines, cultured mesenchymal stromal cells and, thanks to its fluorescence, stromal cells from stromal vascular fractions. The results are more consistent than with a classic hemocytometer. The device is really easy to use and displays the picture of the counting, allowing you to check what counted as a cell or not. You even have a graph with average sizes of the cells. Logos is a company close to their clients and they are very helpful. To conclude: No regret, and time saved!

- Brandie Fullmer
Easiest cell counter to use on the market.
By far the easiest cell counter to use on the market. It clearly tags live and dead cells so the user can check the accuracy of the count. The user does not have to make a ton of adjustments for accurate counting like other instruments.
- Gelina Sani
Children's National Medical Center
The LUNA-FL is one of my favorite machines in our lab. It lets me acquire cell counts so quickly so I can go on with my bench work. Not only are we able to count but we can look at other statistics like viability and average cell size with just the push of a button. The best part about this counter is the accuracy. I am able to reliably count every cell line that I put in, and am able to do it again the next day. I'm so glad we have this system in our lab because counting with trypan blue would take much longer! Overall, I would recommend this product to another lab that is doing a lot of work with cell lines in order to get a quick and accurate count.
- Mikayla Lopes

The LUNA-FL consistently produces fast and reliable results. The counts and viabilities provided by this instrument are consistent with values provided by flow cytometry. This product is remarkably easy to operate, care for, and maintain. In comparison to similar products on the market, the LUNA-FL is exceptional for the low cost.
- Danh Tran
Medical University of South Carolina
Our lab was interested in an automated cell counter because we needed something reproducible enough to compare between groups and to use cell count as a quick approach for normalization. … The LUNA-FL fit our needs the most, and the price was close to our budget. So far, it has been used for many purposes in our lab, including the original assay that we were trying to develop and other applications including quick live/dead information, GFP expression, etc.

I would recommend it simply because it can count a heterogeneous sample obtained from mouse brain. I was surprised by the accuracy of this tiny instrument.
- May Malicdan, MD PhD
It's very convenient to use and very accurate. Especially in the transfection procedures, it's very helpful. Overall, we're very pleased.
- Joanna Ireland, PhD
It works really well. It's easy. It's accurate and fast. I especially like the dual fluorescence and being able to focus on the green and red cells.
