The LUNA-II™ is an automated cell counter that gives you the ultimate brightfield cell counting experience. Press count and the LUNA-II™ does the rest – bringing your cells into the sharpest focus, adjusting light levels, capturing a high-resolution image, and analyzing the image to produce accurate cell count and viability data. You can create custom, cell-specific cell counting protocols or simply use the default counting protocol suitable for most cell lines. 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. This little counter sits comfortably in a cell culture hood or on your benchtop to fit seamlessly into your workflow.

Autofocused Counting In 15 Seconds
An autofocusing liquid lens and advanced software produce concentrationand viability data in as little as 15 seconds.
Accurate Viability Data
The LUNA-II™ can precisely and consistently distinguish live and dead cells from debris.
Advanced Cluster Analysis
Clumpy cells? No problem. An advanced declustering algorithm detects individual cells in clusters.
Simple Recordkeeping
Print data with the built-in printer or export high-resolution images, data, and full data reports via USB.
The Software That Changes Everything.
The Lowest Cost. The Greatest Convenience.
Perfect for labs on a budget, our LUNA™ family of automated cell counters work with the LUNA™ Reusable Slide. The LUNA™ Reusable Slide delivers the affordability of manual cell counting without the associated time, subjectivity, and user-to-user variability. Our disposable slides offer the ultimate counting experience. With no mess or cleanup, these precision slides are convenient and maintain the highest standard of cell counting accuracy.
What Do Our Customers Have To Say?
Steliyan Petrov

Just awesome! It is definitely a cost efficient choice!
Working with LUNA-II automated cell counter is so easy and efficient in comparison to counting cells under the microscope. The single-use slides are so easy to use and the LCD display gives you the opportunity to view in real-time what's being counted. Another advantage is the standardised protocols which also save a lot of time and effort in order to optimize your daily work with the apparatus.
