A microfluidic valve and a microfluidic inverter comprising the valve is disclosed. The microfluidic valve comprising a first rigid layer having a first side; a second rigid layer having a second side facing the first side of the first rigid layer; a flexible layer being arranged between the first side of the first rigid layer and the second side of the second rigid layer, in a first state the flexible layer prevents fluid connection between a first input channel and a first output channel, in a second state the flexible layer protrudes into a first indentation providing fluid connection between the first input channel and the first output channel; and a first control gate channel configured to receive a first fluidic control pressure.
