Very easy to use, accelerates time spent for cytometry.
We purchased the LUNA-II to replace our normal cell counting on hemocytometers. Once we optimized the settings for our cell size, shape, and color, the LUNA-II could give us the same estimated densities in 15 seconds rather than 5 minutes. We are also able to stain our cells with trypan blue for viability counts at the same time. This time-saving machine is also accurate in distinguishing plant cells from junk and giving close approximations to the ones we typically make with glass hemocytometers.
