Circadian LED Lighting Technology
BIOS®, SkyBlue® lighting was designed by human biology, for human biology to promote better sleep, better energy—and better health.
CIRCADIAN LIGHTING WITHOUT COMPROMISE
As a NASA spinoff, BIOS is a biology-first company. We believe in the power of life. We create technologies that harness this power — and optimize it. We’re helping people adapt to modern life by blending evolutionary biology with revolutionary lighting solutions to make the world brighter.
Research has shown that our circadian system has its peak sensitivity in the ‘sky blue’ region near 490nm. BIOS SkyBlue™ spectrum targets this zone and includes a distinct peak at 490nm (the ‘sky blue’ region) which traditional white and tunable white LEDs do not.
BIOS SkyBlue offers 40% increase in circadian impact as compared to traditional white and tunable white LEDs.

THE MISSION TO EARTH
BIOS SKYBLUE TECHNOLOGY
The seeds for what would become BIOS were sewn at NASA, where subject matter expert and BIOS Vice President Robert Soler developed circadian lighting technology for the International Space Station (ISS) to help astronauts achieve healthy sleep patterns in an environment where the sun rises and sets every 90 minutes.
Space is an unforgiving place where small mistakes can mean deadly consequences. In order to keep astronauts alert, focused and safe, NASA needed a way to help them regulate their sleep schedules. Soler and other NASA scientists went to work on an LED system that would signal their bodies when it was time to sleep and time to wake by communicating directly with the astronauts’ circadian biology. The lighting technology they created remains in use on the ISS today.
BIOS SkyBlue® is an evolution of the technology used to help astronauts achieve healthy sleep patterns on the International Space Station. Today, BIOS SkyBlue technology is available in residential and commercial industries.
LIGHT THAT SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE OF HUMAN BIOLOGY
Unlike other circadian lighting “technologies,” SkyBlue provides a light wavelength that communicates directly with human biology via a non-visual photoreceptor in the eye—the natural blue-sky light that our cellular biology has recognized for tens of thousands of years.
