What is a BPU™
And how will it 
change the world?

Inside your computer, the CPU is the processor that makes the computer work. There is also a GPU that draws the graphics on your screen. Cardea is the first and only company to offer a BPU™ - a Biosignal Processing Unit.

The BPU™ is the first mass produced chip that creates a gateway between the live signals in biology and the digital world. In other words, the BPU™ offers direct communication with biology by translating near real-time streams of multiomics signals into digital information.

We introduce a new paradigm in understanding how electronics and biology work together: the Biological Processing Unit, or BPU.  Like a CPU or a GPU, a BPU is a type of microchip.

What makes the BPU distinct is the integration of biological material with graphene, silicon, and other electronics materials.

Cardea’s BPU™ platform consists of BPUs, hardware, software and wetware. The core of the BPU is made up of multiple Cardean Transistors™ - graphene-based biology-gated field-effect transistors.

A functionalized BPU feeds biosignals to the Gateway Reader, that obtains and distributes the digital signal output to the software, the Gateway Analyzer.

Our Commercial Partnerships are designed for those who are ready to hit the ground running with their Powered by Cardea™ service. Commercial partners gain access to our current suite of technology to provide the infrastructure for their assay services. As we develop more technology modules, they will become available to our Commercial Partners and used to expand and build their offerings.
