Bionano Genomics

Bionano Genomics is a provider of genome analysis solutions that can enable researchers and clinicians to reveal answers to challenging questions in biology and medicine. Bionano transform the way the world sees the genome through Optical Genome Mapping solutions, diagnostic services, and software.

The Company offers OGM solutions for applications across basic, translational and clinical research. Bionano Genomics Saphyr® system for whole genome imaging offers an extremely long-read technology, providing unmatched sensitivity to detect structural variation, genome wide, at low cost. Different from sequencing and by leveraging direct visualization of DNA molecules, Bionano Saphyr’s workflow can resolve complex repetitive regions, identify Copy Number Variations, and elucidate genome-wide structural variation above 500 bp and at low allele fraction. Bionano’s high coverage depth allows for the detection of any type of structural variant (including balanced/unbalanced translocations, inversions, insertions, and deletions) with a 90% sensitivity, genome wide, and completely unbiased. 

Through its BioDiscovery business, the Company also offers an industry-leading, platform-agnostic software solution, which integrates next-generation sequencing and microarray data designed to provide analysis, visualization, interpretation and reporting of copy number variants, single-nucleotide variants and absence of heterozygosity across the genome in one consolidated view.
