Biological Innovations and Optimization Systems, LLC (BIOS) is a recognized innovator in the biological application of LED lighting. Through groundbreaking research and continuous development, BIOS LED lighting solutions are designed to improve the health and well-being of people, plants, and animals, while reducing energy use and creating a more sustainable planet.
By integrating years of biological and horticultural expertise with science first developed at NASA for the International Space Station, and the latest advancements in LED lighting and controls, BIOS creates lighting technologies that deliver unparalleled biological and horticultural results.
The BIOS Lighting team has a collective experience of more than 50 years in lighting research and development, and are listed on more than 30 LED lighting technology patents. Located in the “Space Coast” area of FL, its Melbourne headquarters are just south of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, where BIOS continues to participate in support of NASA’s ongoing research programs.
Human (Hu) Lighting Solutions
BIOS Lighting – Shining the right light on a growing health problem.
Electric light has several negative impacts. It disrupts our natural rhythms and has altered our relationship with natural light. It has changed what millions of years of evolution entrained in our bodies.
On average, 90% of our time is spent indoors under electric light. Unfortunately, electric light does a poor job mimicking the sun, which makes our days dimmer, our nights brighter, and our biology confused. Our bodies were designed to sync up to the one true constant in life, the sun.
Circadian Rhythm is the human body clock that operates critical functions including the production of testosterone, growth hormone, cortisol and melatonin. These hormones have a direct influence on a body’s overall functionality in key areas including sleep, alertness, cognition, metabolism, and performance.
New indoor lighting from BIOS can get people back on track with their circadian clocks. In 2016, BIOS Lighting revolutionized lighting with the introduction of BIOS SkyBlue™ LED technology.
Agricultural (Ag) Lighting Solutions
The science, guidance & performance growers need to capitalize on LED technology.
In agriculture, farmers have always relied on the sun to deliver the perfect recipe of light – with mixed results. Today, BIOS lighting technology can provide what plants need most without help from mother nature.
In 2015, BIOS Lighting introduced the Icarus line of LED lighting solutions for agriculture. Before that time, the industry had endured several false starts of applying LED technology to grow facilities. Wild claims, magic spectrums, and poor service by many LED grow light manufacturers created confusion and frustration with indoor growers looking for a better solution than the expensive and toxic conventional HID lighting including metal halide and high pressure sodium.
BIOS Lighting, a pioneer in lighting technology for life, introduces the BIOS Icarus™ product line of industrial grade LED grow light fixtures. These lighting products provide broad “white” spectrum (not purple), along with the highest Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) photon efficacy in an industrial grade fixture for higher plant quality and yields.
