Yeast strains used in food and drink production can be notoriously clumpy.The LUNA-II YF™ has an autofocusing cell counting and declustering algorithm that counts individual yeast cells in just 15 seconds.
As is well-known in brewing and winemaking industries, the quantity of yeast pitched to initiate fermentation directly affects the flavor, aroma, and quality of the final product. Although yeast can be pitched by weight or volume, such methods are inexact and highly variable. The ASBC method using methylene blue method is more accurate but time consuming and subjective. Use the LUNA-II YF™ to get accurate and reproducible yeast cell counts in as little as 15 seconds. This little counter sits comfortably in a cell culture hood or on your benchtop to fit seamlessly into your workflow.
Great results and value.
I like this product. The machine is so good and accurate. I always check the results with manually counting and the results are consistent.

Great product. I am an equipment manager. I am very pleased with this product to check and count enamel in beer. Fast, accurate and complete parameters are the most basic factors. It is very easy to use. After sales care service is very good. Product worth the money.
