microactuators for driving innnovation

more function in less space with memetis

memetis' microactuators made of shape memory alloys generate considerable forces while being super compact. They are designed to enable movement:  

  • on microfluidic chips and disposable cartridges,
  • for controlling disposable valves,  
  • for automating biochemical assays
  • and in other applications. 

Our actuators allow you to innovate and offer smaller and more intelligent point-of-care devices, medical devices, lab-/organ-on-a-chip solutions, or to power research setups.

Wherever movement needs to be realized in the smallest of installation spaces, we are the right partner for you.

Chip Actuators for Life Sciences

The width of our chip actuator is designed for 9 mm spacing to fit, for example, on a multi-well plate

Our chip actuators

Chip Actuators by memetis are compact and multifunctional linear actuators that are designed with a broad range of applications in mind. They offer strokes of up to 2 mm and peak forces of up to 8 N to power movement in your system.
