3-port/2-way microfluidic valve
The 2-SWITCH™ is a compact 3-port/2-way microfluidic valve. Using standard fittings, it can be integrated into any microfluidic setup. Its unique design allows to combine multiple 2-SWITCH™ together to save space on your benchtop.
Easily combine & parallelize
Actuation & Response time
Control with or without a PC
Fluid switching & sampling
The 2-SWITCH™ can be used for fluid switching or sampling depending on the direction of flow. When 2 liquids are coming into the valve, select which to deliver to your device. Alternately, one liquid can be driven into selected parts of a setup for sampling / sorting.
Parallelize & Combine
The specific design of the valve allows one to combine several together with a minimum of space requirement. Added to the automation software, one can easily create multiple fluidic paths.
The valve can be controlled by using OxyGEN software for long-term experiments. Create a time-based protocol to set the timing of the valve(s).
The 2-SWITCH™ is a versatile device that can be very easily adapted into an on/off valve (2-port/2-position) by connecting a plug to one port (other than the common port).
A compact and useful tool
Its versatility makes it ideal for applications where fluid sorting, switching or periodic sampling are required.

The 2-SWITCH™ is a 3-port / 2-way solenoid valve: two ports can alternatively be connected to a third one (the common port), thanks to the movement of a diaphragm actuated by a solenoid. The flow is bidirectional in the 2-SWITCH™, meaning that the device can be used as a selector and a distributor.
