Introducing the LUNA-FX7™ - the newest member of the award-winning LUNA™ Cell Counter family. The LUNA-FX7™ is our most powerful cell counter to date, with unmatched cell counting accuracy, new 1, 3 and 8-chamber slide options, state of the art optics, dual fluorescent and brightfield detection, precision autofocus, and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. The LUNA-FX7™ has built-in quality control software and new validation slides for monitoring QC and production. By combining the trademark ease of use characteristic of all LUNA™ counters with the enhanced accuracy, higher throughput, and software upgrades - the LUNA-FX7™ will improve the efficiency and security of your lab's workflow.

Best In Class Accuracy
Improved counting algorithm and increased measuring volumes lower the CV, even less than 1%!
Multiple Samples In One Go
New 8- and 3-chamber slide increase the sample throughput.
Expanded Cell Concentration Range (1.0e04 – 5.0e07 Cells/Ml)
Suitable for diverse cell counting applications including single cell sequencing and CAR-T dosing determinations.
Excellence Of Counting Both Brightfield And Fluorescence
The fast and precise autofocus with an optimized software algorithm fulfils desired counting results.
Confidence, Trust And Reliability
Built-in QC software and validation slides for brightfield and fluorescence allow daily QC monitoring and reporting.
Countwire™ - 21 Cfr Part 11 Compliance
CountWire™ software provides the complementary data security and accessibility management.
The Software That Changes Everything.
The End To The Accuracy Debate

The effect of cell counting volume on accuracy is often overlooked. Manual counting and most automated cell counters detect cells in a counting volume of ~ 0.5 µl. The LUNA-FX7™ utilizes a counting volume of up to 5.1 µl, lowering error and CV for each count. Improved de-clustering algorithms and precise autofocus further add to the LUNA-FX7™’s accuracy and reliability.

Easy, Flexible And Robust

Not only the simple and efficient operation via intuitive touchscreen controls, brightfield and dual fluorescent detection options, multiple counting modes, and customizable protocols allow you to easily optimize for your cell and sample type. Counting results may be exported as a CSV summary or a comprehensive PDF report with raw and tagged images. With an internal 250GB hard drive, no additional computer is needed and data may be exported via Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or USB flash drive.

Unique Bioprocess Mode

A new bioprocess feature allows you to monitor, record, and analyze your different bioprocessing activities individually. Growth rates and trend charts may be produced that enable you to trace production and accurately forecast timelines.

Trust Your Data

The LUNA-FX7™ validation slides and QC software allow you to be confident and trust in your data. The brightfield and fluorescent validation slides offer exact cell concentration and viability while the QC features provide the ability to store, monitor, and analyze quality control data.

Throughput, Control And Efficiency
The LUNA-FX7™ provides the ability to use multiple slide formats including 8-, 3-, 2-, and single chamber slides. The intuitive user-interface allows you to easily switch between slide formats and designate the exact chambers that are counted - allowing unused chambers to be used in the future. With ‘One and Done’ slide insertion, a slide only needs to be inserted once into the counter without having to remove and reinsert the slide to count different chambers.
Countwire™ - 21 Cfr Part 11 Compliance

The CountWire™ System allows multiple users to remotely access and manage data from LUNA-FX7™ units, and it completely supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, enabling the LUNA-FX7™ Automated Cell Counter to be used in a regulated process.

User Access Control

The CountWire™ System allows multiple users to remotely access and manage data from LUNA-FX7™ units, and it completely supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, enabling the LUNA-FX7™ Automated Cell Counter to be used in a regulated process.

Electronic Signature

All reports may be digitally signed and the electronic signature information includes the name and user ID of the signer, as well as the date, time and meaning of the signature.

Audit Trail

All actions are recorded within the audit trail, time-stamped, tagged to the user, identified with the instrument name and serial number.

Data Safety and Security

The CountWire™ System reliably protects all from deletion, overwriting, alteration, and/or possible accidences.

What Do Our Customers Have To Say?
astha Jindal

Fast counting and accurate results.
The LUNA-FX7 is user-friendly, the results are reproducible, and there is a minimum reduction of waste. Also, it allows the user to use both trypan blue, and Propidium Iodide stain. It is a value for money product.

Selecta Biosciences

Jared Sills

Great results that are accurate all the time.
The LUNA-FX7 has made my life so much easier! Compared to hemocytometer counting, it is way more efficient and time saving. Our entire team has loved the ease of use as well. The option to use Bright field or Fluorescence is very handy in our field.
