Great improvement on the traditional pipetting devices!! Thank you!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Tissue culture liquid handling and microtiter plate used (ELISA, etc.)

"Very ergonomic and easy to use. The idea of designing a pipetting device that can stand is extremely useful, especially in a biosafety cabinet environment"

Great innovative instrument, cant wait to see what the newer models have!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:daily use for aliquoting samples and buffer

"This is a great instrument, ergonomic in design, useful in the biosafety hood, helps decrease hand fatigue, accurate in multi dispensing or aliquoting, easy to use, enabled high throughput accuracy in a shorter amount of time, would certainly recommend to others!"

Every lab should have one.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Aliquotting cell culture media

"The Ovation ali-Q has become instrumental for performing high throughput pre-clinical and clinical cell based assays in our lab. Aliquotting media into hundreds of tubes has become easier. Because the technology is based on a familiar platform of serological pipette dispenser, it is very easy to use and its small footprint makes it versatile to use inside the biosafety cabinet or the benchtop. Dispensing volumes are accurate and the price is reasonable."

What a Great Idea!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:cell culture

"The Ali-Q has quickly become a lab favorite. It has proven to be accurate, reliable and very easy to use. It's a huge help in our lab because we no longer have to watch the volume dispensed while making sure the tip doesn't touch any part of the flask, well or plate. We can feed the maximum number of flasks with a single larger volume pipette."

Lab assistants are now wanting to aliquot media, even when it isn't a high priority.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Aliquoted media

"We do a great deal of aliquoting media into cryovial tubes. The ease of the dial to set the amount and quick dispensing ability has made this task extremely more efficient."

Unsurpassed ease of setting and dispensing aliquots with a handheld pipette controller.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Mammalian cell culture

"This is the first pipette controller I have seen that has an intuitive method of dispensing precise aliquots. Following the Ovation pipette, the engineers at VistaLab continue their outstanding record of combining elegant design with instinctive functionality."

Our tissue culture friend!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Tissue culture

"Great for dispensing the same amount repeatedly. It aliquots certain amounts (between 0.5 ml and 5.0 ml) from the pipette of your choice. It has standard up and down buttons the same as other pipettes plus the aliquot button which dispenses the selected amount. You can combine both functions so dispensing 1.5 ml x 10 plus 10 ml x 1ml can be done with one 25 ml pipette. You can concentrate on the tip of the pipette and the culture plates because you don't have to watch the graduations on the pipette."

Great product, could use improvements in future models
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Tissue Culture

"In general this product is great and a brilliant idea. In practice, it generally works, however the device is fairly heavy and the purple dispensing button is occasionally sticky. Also the aliquotting is in general fairly accurate, however I find that it ends up dispensing just slightly more than what I list. Also another area of improvement is that the dial is not the most accurate and could be locked in. In general a great product."

Great pipette filler. Easy to set and easy to use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microbiology and molecular biology

"This pipette filler is the same price as many others on the market. However, I like it better for a few reasons: 1) it stands on it own. It doesn't need a separate stand, but it does come with one if you choose. 2) it can be used as a regular pipette filler and the buttons are sensitive enough that you can adjust the speed of fill and dispense. 3) it has a feature that allows you to set a volume to dispense (calibrated) and a separate button you push to repeat this. It is easy to set and easy to use."

  • Application Area:Aliquotting

"This product saves us a great deal of time when performing large aliquotting jobs and does it more accurately than the average bench tech."

Review date: 29 Jan 2018 | Ovation® ali-Q™

Unlike any other pipet controller, ali-Q™ allows you to aliquot accurately with each push of the unique aliquoting button. Simply set the volume for each aliquot with the ali-Q™ dial and hold down the aliquoting button for each aliquot. Eliminate time-consuming and inconsistent meniscus eyeballing. Let ali-Q‘s state of the art intelligent measuring system do all the work to save you time and effort with accuracy and precision. Increase your productivity.

  • Highly accurate and precise aliquoting without the need to "eyeball" the meniscus
  • Aliquot any volume from 0.5 to 5.0 mL with exceptional repeatability with just one button
  • Compatible with all brands and sizes of serological pipets
  • Intelligent measuring system gives real-time corrections for varying environmental conditions—no adjustment necessary
  • Accuracy and precision maintained at any dispense angle for more comfortable body positions (especially beneficial when working in hoods)
  • Ergonomic design for optimal grip comfort
  • Self standing (wall mount is included)
