memetis develops and produces miniature valves based on shape memory alloy actuators. These ultracompact valves stand out with their low internal volume and low power consumption. The valves are media-separated and the wetted materials are biocompatible. With these advantages they are particularly suitable for applications in Life Sciences and the medical field, especially for mobile use at the Point-of-Care.
Fluidic systems that are sensitive to abrupt changes of fluid flow require valves that switch smoothly. The noiseless and yet fast shape memory alloy technology of memetis enables exactly this. In combination with a flow-sensor, memetis miniature valves can even be operated in proportional mode to precisely control flow rate.
