"Great product, can't imagine cell counting without it."

I have used the LUNA cell counter multiple times each week for the past year and have been very pleased with results. Counts have been consistent and my throughput has rocketed ever since I've been able to retire by haemocytometer! I couldn't go back now I've experienced the world of automated cell counting.
