Unlike any other pipet controller, with ali-Q™ you can repeat pipette accurately with each push of the unique purple aliquoting button and just use serological pipets (no special tips necessary). Simply set the volume for each multidispense on the aliquot dial and hold down the aliquoting button for each dispense. Eliminate time-consuming and inconsistent meniscus eyeballing, i.e. no need to watch the graduations on the serological pipet.

It is amazing. No weakness at all
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Cell culture

"Ali-Q2 is the best pipet controller in the market, it is very easy to use and accurate. I had an issue with my first one, then I contacted the company and they solved my issue very quickly. I strongly suggest the use of ali-Q2."

Great instrument, we can't live without it!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Pipetting of biological samples

"We love this automated pipettor! It is the only product on the market that allows a repeat function at this volume and it has helped to make processing of blood so much easier. We did have one small problem with the charging function, but I called customer service to reset the instrument, and it has been working great ever since."

A must have for accurate and efficient aliquotting
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Endotoxin testing, sterility testing

"The ali-Q 2 is the one of the most useful lab tools I have ever used. The ali-Q 2 delivers an accurate volume so you can focus on delivering to an accurate location. It makes aliquotting buffers for serial dilutions easy to do in a single step. It's great for adding medium to 24-well cell culture plates and 24-well cell culture inserts. The convenience of being able to use a standard serological pipet is a huge advantage over other instruments that require a separate consumable."

A pipettor with a nice trick under it's sleeve
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cell culture

"Just like the other serological pipettors but with an additional bang, a pre measured volume which is a big plus when I aliquot solutions and distributing fairly same amount in every vessel as oppose to visual estimates."

Great product, saves time, allows for maximal comfort and reduced strain on hands.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:General cell culture & therapeutic applications

"The ali-Q™ 2 VS Variable Speed Aliquoting Pipet Controller pays for itself. Not only does it save tons of time when doing large batches of cell culturing and treatments, it also allows for maximal comfort while doing these tasks. After a long day of pipetting, I no longer have a claw for a hand. This is a really great product that is fun to use, increases reproducibility and takes a lot of strain off of your hands."

I’d buy Ali-Q2 VS in a heartbeat. Great lab gadget!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell culture and media/buffer preps. Cardiovascular regenerative medicine

"It helps makes life easier aliquoting solutions and preparing buffers and also, aliquoting cells suspended in media in multi-well plates. It’s such an accurate tool. I don’t even need to look sometimes as I know it’s dispensing the right volume in my tubes or wells."

Wonderful.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Mammalian cell culture/tissue engineering

"The first one was great but this is even better! The ability to control the force/speed at which the aliquots come out have been pivotal in making this equipment usable in most/all scenarios. It's generally easy to control the speed of aspiration/dispensing with the manual controls, and it's lighter than the original ali-Q. The little attachment that allows you to place the pipettor on its side with the serological pipette still in is quite convenient. I love that it has USB-C. Price-wise it's slightly more than 'normal' serological pipettors, and you can catch seasonal deals or get a specific quote to bring the price essentially down to that of other pipettors."

Very good alternative for a pipette controller, with the repeat dispensing!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell culture

"The Ali-Q2 does exactly what it promised. Aliquoting and dispensing in the same piece of equipment, at a comparable cost to other "dispensing only" units. The Ali-Q2 is bulkier, but not problematic to handle. The precision is very good and the touch sensitive controls are very accurate. Only note is the motor that works at seemingly random times, this is perfectly normal but throws off a bit if you are used to common controllers."

Review date: 16 Nov 2020 | ali-Q™ 2 VS Variable Speed Aliquoting Pipet Controller

Unlike any other pipet controller, with ali-Q™ you can repeat pipette accurately with each push of the unique purple aliquoting button and just use serological pipets (no special tips necessary). Simply set the volume for each multidispense on the aliquot dial and hold down the aliquoting button for each dispense. Eliminate time-consuming and inconsistent meniscus eyeballing, i.e. no need to watch the graduations on the serological pipet. And now, with the next generation ali-Q 2 series, features include:

  • A removable kickstand 
  • On-board calibration
  • Lighter in weight than the original

The 3 models of the ali-Q 2 series are: 

  • Original high fixed speed ali-Q 2 (faster dispensing of larger volumes)
  • Low fixed Speed ali-Q 2 LS (slower dispensing with less force for smaller receptacles as well as sensitive cells in culture)
  • Variable Speed ali-Q 2 VS (7 speeds; you choose which is best for each use)

The new Variable Speed ali-Q 2 model allows you to adjust the aliquoting speed to fit your application needs providing even more versatility for repeat pipetting in any application that requires multidispensing the same volume over and over again. With your serological pipets and ali-Q 2 VS, you get a unique 2-in-1 pipetter for repeat pipetting as well as conventional aspirating/dispensing. Let ali-Q‘s proprietary innovative pipetting technology do all the work to save you time and effort with accuracy and superior reproducibility. Increase your productivity. Pipetting is faster and easier and repeat pipetting is more accurate than by eye with ali-Q.
