The LUNA-STEM™ is a dual fluorescence automated cell counter that measures cell number and viability.
The most advanced fluorescence optics and analysis software enables the LUNA-STEM™ to accurately count nucleated and non-nucleated cells such as stem cells and cells in the stromal vascular fraction (SVF), setting itself apart from other cell counters.
The LUNA-STEM™, integrated with dual fluorescence as well as bright field optics, is a giant leap forward for automated cell counting and viability analysis. Using two dyes, Acridine Orange (AO) & Propidium Iodide (PI), the LUNA-STEM™ provides sensitive and accurate data for almost all cell types, especially stem cells and SVF cells.
With the LUNA-STEM™, all nucleated and non-nucleated cells are counted and analyzed. For example, the LUNA-STEM™ can detect and analyze the various SVF nucleated cells (adipocytes, blood cells, and others) and non-nucleated cells (RBCs, microvascular elements, and others), which is currently an impossibility for other cell counters.
Interactive Software Interface
Powerful on-board analysis
Once the LUNA-STEM™ has counted your cells, the built-in software immediately generates cell viability data. Green and red circles indicate live and dead cells, respectively.
Cell size gating
Counted cells can be gated based on cell size. Using the histogram that displays live and dead cell population, you can easily exclude or include specific sizes by simply dragging the ends of the histogram.
Three images captured from each channel (bright field, green, red) can be merged directly on the screen. The individual brightness of each color can be adjusted. All images can be saved onto an external USB drive.
The analyzed data can be saved as a PDF report or CSV file. Counting results, cell images, and histograms are combined into a single PDF file and saved to an external USB drive.
Reduced Counting Costs, Increased Convenience
COST EFFICIENT: The new LUNA™ Reusable Slide has been designed to work with the LUNA™ family of cell counters for cost-efficient and accurate cell counting. The LUNA™ Reusable Slide has the affordability of manual cell counting without the associated subjectivity and time.
CONVENIENT: PhotonSlides™ are disposable precision slides made with optical quality materials for optimal fluorescence signal detection. The slides offer the ultimate counting experience with no mess or cleanup, while maintaining the highest standard of cell counting accuracy.
Compact and Fast Thermal Printer
The LUNA-STEM™ provides a compact mobile printer for further record keeping purposes. Thermal or label paper can be used.
The mobile printer is ready to use with a simple USB connection.
