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.

2/2-way valve with media separation

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:

  • controllable
  • low power consumption
  • ultra-compact
  • biocompatible
  • media separated
  • normally open or normally closed
  • silent operation
  • smooth operation omits shock waves
  • 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.

What element switches our valves?

The heart of our valves is an actuator made of a shape memory alloy which opens and closes the valve. The actuator enables the quiet operation, the compactness of the valves, the layer structure and many other features of our valves.
