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."

It has its uses.

"It is efficient for mass amounts of samples but is cumbersome to work with for a few samples at a time over a regular battery operated pipette. "

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, ali-Q™ allows you to repeat pipette accurately with each push of the unique purple aliquoting button. 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, the next generation ali-Q 2 series is here, with a new removable kickstand and on-board calibration, plus lighter in weight than the original.

3 models of ali-Q 2 available: 

  • high fixed speed ali-Q 2
  • low fixed speed ali-Q 2 LS
  • variable speed ali-Q 2 VS

The new Variable Speed ali-Q 2 model allows the user to adjust the aliquoting speed to fit their application needs providing even more versatility for repeat pipetting in any application that requires multidispensing the same volume over and over again.  And all you need are serological pipets for repeat pipetting along with your conventional pipetting with the 2-in-1 ali-Q 2 pipettor. 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 with ali-Q.
