From CPUs to BPUs – a new generation of biocompatible semiconductors for rapid amplification-free genotyping being introduced at AGBT

The prestigious Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference in Orlando Florida, Chief Scientific Officer of Cardea Bio, Dr. Kiana Aran – the 2021 winner of the Nature Research Award for Inspiring Women in Science – is a first day plenary speaker, introducing the first-generation multiomics BPUs that combine CRISPR technology with the ultra-sensitivity of a graphene-based BPU™ (Biosignal Processing Unit) to detect target DNA sequences within the whole genome without the need for DNA amplification.
