Helping the world Conduct Biology™
the biology-gated transistor infrastructure that directly links biology to digital networks.
EXPLORE CARDEA INSIGHT



Welcome to Cardea™
Helping the world Conduct Biology
Cardea is developing a new generation of (bio)technology infrastructure based on proprietary biology-gated transistors (“Cardean transistors”). Cardean transistors leverage biocompatible graphene instead of silicon and replace optical signal observations with direct electrical molecular signal analysis. Until now, life science data was comprised of static snapshot datasets. With Cardean transistors, we can together with our Innovation Partners generate streaming multi-omics data to measure real-time biological signals. Cardea is now mass-manufacturing chips at scale and partners have started to significantly expand the amount, type and quality of biological data they capture by building products that Conduct Biology.

Internet of Biology
The world is generating more and more data from all kinds of sources. All data generation and computational work is done in order to get valuable insights and signals.

Digitally harvesting into the most signal-rich data type of them all, biology, has up until now been slow, expensive and hard expert-work. Many genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics technologies are optically based and require a lot of adjustments to the biology itself in order for us to “see it”. These technologies are also often big, expensive, and finicky lab instruments that require an expert to run. What’s even worse, is that researchers have not been able to look at DNA, RNA, and proteins simultaneously in one sample as the instruments often run in different kinds of labs. This means that for instance, genomics and proteomics have become two silos of data that do not fit together.

For a new generation of insight to biology to happen, we have to get direct access to real-time biology. Cardea’s biology-gated transistors are the world’s first electrical transistor to directly connect biological and digital networks. This opens the window of opportunity to the last unexplored branch of the Internet: the Internet of Biology.
