You mean something like a CONSUMER REPORTS for lab equipment.  Good Luck!
Let me know if you find one.

I suggest that you contact several manufacturers of cell counting equipment.
Tell them what you need.  Ask for a users list.  All reliable manufacturers
will supply them.  Call 5-10 of their users directly and get their input
regarding the equipment reliability, repair/service record, experience with
the company, etc.
