Welcome to Cardea™
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.
