What is BIOS SkyBlue?

A proprietary circadian lighting solution created by NASA Spinoff BIOS Lighting, to promote better sleep, better energy, and better health.

How does BIOS SkyBlue work?

  • Research has established that effective circadian lighting should include a “sky blue” (490nm) wavelength, which is found in daylight, but is missing from most traditional LED lighting systems
  • The SkyBlue 490nm wavelength communicates directly with human biology via non-visual photoreceptors in the eye, known as ipRGCs (photosensitive retinal ganglion cells)
  • ipRGCs contain melanopsin, a protein, which, when stimulated by light, sends a signal to the body to reset its cycle for the next 24 hours. This triggers a variety of biological processes, including the production of cortisol for morning alertness and melatonin for a good night’s sleep
  • BIOS SkyBlue optimizes this natural process, without complicated controls, energy-sapping increases in illumination, and uncomfortable color temperature changes
  • BIOS surpasses traditional white LEDs in melanopic content, regardless of CCT
