The LUNA-II YF™ Automated Yeast Cell Counter is a fully automated image-based yeast cell counter. Dual fluorescence optics, an autofocusing liquid lens, and a sophisticated yeast cell counting algorithm produce count and viability data in just 15 seconds, doing away with the subjectivity and time of manual cell counting.

LUNA-II YF™ counts yeast cells stained with fluorescent nucleic acid dyes with the precision and consistency of a flow cytometer in less than 15 seconds. Yeast counting has never been so simple or so rapid.

Advanced Software with a Simple Touchscreen Interface

An easy-to-use touchscreen interface allows counting with just a few touches. Every sample is counted with the greatest accuracy and consistency across samples, instruments, and even users by simply loading the desired protocol and pressing count.

Fully automated yeast cell count and viability analysis

The LUNA-II YF™ automatically focuses on yeast cell samples, captures high resolution images in two fluorescence channels, and runs the information through an advanced counting algorithm to churn out cell count and viability data in just 15 seconds.

Customizable protocols

The LUNA-II YF™ counting algorithm detects cells based on quantitative measurements rather than error-prone human judgement. The counting parameters can be optimized for each yeast strain. This ensures the standardization of data acquired from user to user and count to count.

Dilution calculator

The dilution calculator makes determining dilutions for subsequent experiments a breeze.

Onboard storage

Data is automatically saved as a CSV file to the LUNA-II YF™. The LUNA-II YF™ can store up to 1000 counts onboard.

Detailed data reports

Comprehensive PDF reports of count and viability results, high resolution cell images, count parameters, and histograms can be saved to a USB drive.

Reduced Counting Costs, Increased Convenience

The LUNA-II YF™ is compatible with both reusable slides and disposable slides. The LUNA™ Reusable Slide has the affordability of manual cell counting without the associated subjectivity, variability, and time. PhotonSlides™ are disposable precision slides that offer the ultimate counting experience with no mess or cleanup.

Both slides have been designed to maintain the highest standard of cell counting accuracy for fluorescence cell counting.
