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.

    Main benefits
    • Intuitive

      Plug & Play valve & local button

    • Compact

      Easily combine & parallelize

    • Quick

      Actuation & Response time

    • Adaptable

      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.

    Time-based automation

    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).

    ON/OFF switch

    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.

    Smart control and automation of your fluidic path

    Discover Fluigent microfluidic valves, a set of compact instruments allowing to complexify and easily handle the fluidic path of your system. Once integrated in the set-up, the valves can be controlled in real-time and even without the requirement of a PC.

    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.
