|High data quality|
|Low running costs|
The LUNA II YF is a new generation of fluorescence cell counter, specifically designed for counting yeast. It combines cutting edge optics, intuitive software and high data quality at a very attractive price. Running costs are low and can be reduced even further by using the LUNA Reusable counting slide.
Yeast counting has traditionally been a time consuming and frustrating process. The LUNA-II YF from Logos Biosystems changes that and removes the user to user variability found with manual methods. The LUNA-II YF is a fully automated system providing accurate counting and viability data for a wide range of yeast strains. This information is essential in both brewing and winemaking to ensure correct fermentation, batch consistency and the desired flavour profile in the final product. Yeast are also a widely used tool in research, where accurate counting and viability data are also essential for successful experiments.
The LUNA-II YF incorporates the latest image sensor technology, liquid lens autofocus and proven counting algorithms to remove the subjectivity that affects traditional methods, substantially improving reproducibility and data quality.
This compact stand alone system incorporates dual fluorescence optics enabling either AO/PI or FDA/PI stain combinations to be used. Cells are diluted (if required), mixed with the supplied stain and then loaded into a slide for counting. Users have the choice of disposable Photon slides (no cleaning required) or the LUNA Reusable counting slide to minimise consumables expenditure. The LUNA-II YF automatically focusses on the cells and provides counting viability data in as little as 15 seconds.
The LUNA-II YF has an integrated colour touchscreen interface that allows users to edit and save protocols, as well as export data in a range of formats including TIFF images and comprehensive PDF reports via a USB flash drive.
