Cell culture is a significant component of many labs. Seemingly mundane tasks such as plating and feeding cells is often a large part of a scientist’s day. Aliquoting samples, cells for cryopreservation, or reagents for media prep, and similar repetitive activities, are necessary and can be tedious. The ali-Q™ 2 innovative technology and unique pipet controller design, allows for more efficient, accurate, and easier aliquoting. The ali-Q’s 2-in-1 capability of repeat pipetting plus conventional aspirating and dispensing provide a one-stop solution for serological pipetting needs.
Pipetting liquids using a handheld portable controller is part of the daily routine in many laboratories. Preparing numerous aliquots can be a tedious, time-consuming task, often necessitating hours spent performing repetitive movements in uncomfortable postures. Aliquoting also requires skill and attention to ensure the accuracy and consistency critical to successful experimental outcomes. The ali-Q™ 2 aliquoting pipet controller is designed to address these challenges, and enables rapid, accurate aliquoting while maximizing user comfort and ease of operation.
Busy laboratories benefit from solutions that improve the speed and efficiency of routine tasks. Working with serological pipet controllers requires the operator to carefully observe the graduation marks for accurate dispensing. This becomes a time-consuming process when preparing dozens of aliquots, or plating and feeding wells for growing cells in culture. The ali-Q™ aliquoting pipet controller offers an efficient alternative, as it can be set to multi-dispense any volume up to five milliliters at the push of a button, eliminating the need to carefully watch the pipet graduations.
The ali-Q™ 2 aliquoting pipet controller is the only 2-in-1 product that allows for both conventional and repeat pipetting using serological pipets. No other controller has ali-Q’s repeater pipetting capability that eliminates the need to watch the lines on the serological pipet for faster and easier aliquoting than having to measure “by eye” watching the meniscus. The ali-Q’s computer controlled technology gives you accurate volume dispenses every time, meaning consistent repeatability.
