Tissue-derived samples are often contaminated with red blood cells and noncellular debris, making cell counting a time-consuming, subjective, and error-prone process. The LUNA-STEM™ is equipped with dual fluorescence and brightfield optics to distinguish live and dead nucleated cells from non-nucleated cells. Samples are stained with nucleic acid dyes to determine the concentration and viability of mononucleated cells. Non-nucleated cells are distinguished from debris and also counted. In as little as 30 seconds, the LUNA-STEM™ reports total cell concentration, nucleated cell concentration, non-nucleated cell concentration, cell viability, and average cell size. A high-resolution image with live cells labeled with green circles and dead cells with red circles can be viewed to confirm data visually.
- COUNT TISSUE-DERIVED CELLS. Using dual fluorescence and brightfield optics, the LUNA-STEM™ can distinguish between cells and debris.
- 30 SECONDS TO RESULTS. In as little as 30 seconds, the LUNA-STEM™ captures, merges, and analyzes images from three channels to produce cell count and viability data.
- NUCLEATED AND NON-NUCLEATED CELL ANALYSIS. Nucleic stains make sure that nucleated cells are counted as live or dead cells whereas nonnucleated cells are counted as non-nucleated cells.
- EASY RECORD KEEPING. PDF reports complete with images and data are automatically generated and can be transferred to a PC or printed for your records.
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.
