BIOS Illuminated Partner


Brownlee Lighting is officially a BIOS Illuminated Partner. In 2022, we will begin updating specification sheets with specifiable BIOS SkyBlue Gen2 ordering nomenclature. BIOS technology will be available in select Brownlee models, so in the meantime, please send inquiries to your local representative, who can provide you with preliminary model and availability information.

Biological Innovations and Optimization Systems, LLC (BIOS), a NASA spin-off, is a recognized innovator in the biological application of LED lighting. Through continuous research and development, BIOS LED lighting solutions continue to be at the forefront of human-centric lighting. By integrating years of biological expertise, with science first developed for the International Space Station, BIOS is driving the circadian lighting market with a biology first approach and brilliant quality LEDs that can help achieve WELL Building Standards™.

THE REALITY: Most of us spend 90% of our time indoors. Our brains are naturally stimulated by and highly sensitive to the daylight signals; sitting indoors, we are not getting enough. Traditional lighting — even typical LED lighting — does not provide the proper light signals our bodies need to optimize our biological clocks and maintain healthy circadian rhythms. THE SOLUTION: BIOS SkyBlue™ LED Circadian Solutions have been developed based on the latest developments in circadian photo-biological research. With a peak energy emission at 490nm, BIOS SkyBlue is the first circadian light source specifically engineered to align with the key blue sky signals our bodies need. BIOS SkyBlue Solutions provide the highest melanopic ratio for a given color temperature while ensuring comfortable and energy efficient illumination that helps to promote healthy circadian rhythms, allowing you to work more productively, sleep more soundly, and live healthier. That’s the natural brilliance of BIOS.

HUMAN CENTRIC LIGHTING: SkyBlue Gen2 & WELL Building Standard

BIOS is proud to announce the release of SkyBlue Generation 2 (Gen 2) Circadian LED Lighting Solutions. SkyBlue Gen2 provides all the benefits of Generation 1 technology ─ industry leading m/p ratios in standard architectural CCTs, exceptional color quality with a peak blue emission at 490nm for maximum circadian benefit. SkyBlue Gen 2 now offers improved efficacy and extends the range of CCT performance, combining biology with psychology to give you brighter days and sleepier nights. BIOS SkyBlue™ Generation 2 LED circadian solutions contributes to satisfying Circadian Lighting Design Feature 54 under the WELL Building Standard v1 and Feature L03 under the Well Building Standard v2. BIOS SkyBlue also meets other features within the WELL Light Concept, including coloring quality offering 81+ CRI and R9 values greater than 90, visual comfort metrics, and higher m/p ratios than traditional LED lighting.


*Specification sheets are not yet updated with specifiable BIOS ordering nomenclature. Please send inquiries to your local representative. Pick your desired model, size, and lumen package, and add “-BIOS” to the end of the ordering code. We can then provide a preliminary ordering code.
