Miniature valves for microfluidic applications

Where other valves reach their limits of miniaturization, memetis valves begin

The advantages of microfluidics are unmistakable - low media consumption, laminar flows and high precision. Microfluidic systems are mainly used in the life sciences, where small amounts of fluid need to be controlled.

Miniature valves save valuable installation space and increase functionality. Above all, the possibilities of decentralized applications are playing an increasingly important role. Whether diagnosis at home, outdoor operation in remote places or flexible work in the laboratory - from microscope to incubator - portable devices become more and more indispensable.
The Shape Memory Alloy microvalves from memetis offer decisive advantages:

  • low internal volume
  • low power consumption
  • ultra-compact
  • biocompatible materials
  • media separated
  • silent operation
  • customizable thanks to patented layer structure

Press Comment / Miniature valves tailor-made at the blink of an eye

Microfluidic applications require ever smaller, yet very powerful valves that take up minimal space. This applies not least to portable applications in medical devices that are placed directly on patients or even implanted. Many stationary medical or environmental analytical devices also require high-performance miniature valves with dimensions where solenoid valves with solenoid coils reach their technological limits.

Customer comment / Victorinox AG

"Victorinox focuses on product design and quality and is always looking for ways to increase functionality. For developing a new function on one of our Travel Gear product, we approached memetis for their expertise in miniature actuation. They proved to be a very reliable project partner who acts fast and delivers what they promise. We were very pleased that memetis quickly developed a sophisticated prototype that met our full expectations. This is one of the reasons why we can thoroughly recommend the actuator solutions from memetis.“
