Bionano Genomics Hosts Day 1 of 2022 Symposium with Six Presentations Highlighting the Superior Performance of OGM in Variant Detection for Constitutional Genetic Diseases
Six presentations from leading researchers across
Performance of OGM evaluated in pre- and postnatal samples. Both
Capabilities of OGM to measure repeat expansions were evaluated. Dr. Alexander Hoischen specifically explored the capabilities of OGM to map repeat expansions, which can be particularly challenging types of SVs, in subjects with Canvas syndrome and myotonic dystrophy types 1 and 2. The OGM workflow was able to immediately call very large insertions with greater precision than the standard cytogenetic techniques and with 100% concordance. OGM was shown to allow researchers the ability to see more of the genome, while being less time-consuming and labor-intensive than other molecular methodologies like Southern blotting, as Dr.
The role of OGM as a discovery tool in reproductive disorders including infertility. In addition to pre- and postnatal applications, two speakers, Dr.
Among 37 posters appearing in the virtual exhibition hall the top poster per application area selected to compete for best poster of Symposium. In addition to the oral presentations, 37 posters were received and selected for presentation in the virtual exhibition hall. These posters, in the virtual exhibition hall, were voted on by attendees of Symposium and a winner was named in each of four key application areas based on total number of votes. Below are the four poster winners:
- Constitutional cytogenomics: Dr.
Catherine A. Brownstein, Boston Children’s Hospital
- Hematologic malignancies: Dr.
Jonathan L. Lühmann, Hannover Medical School
- Solid tumors: Dr.
Miriam Bornhorst, Children’s National Hospital
- OGM + NGS: Dr.
Nikhil Sahajpal, Augusta University
“Sincere congratulations to our poster winners and thanks to all poster authors for sharing emerging research on OGM from their laboratories,” remarked
“We are thrilled at this strong kick-off to the 2022 Symposium and we are excited about the data shared today by experts from around the world that continues to demonstrate the utility of OGM workflows in variant detection for constitutional genetic diseases,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano. “Congratulations to the poster winners. We are impressed by all the discoveries our customers are making with OGM towards the goal of elevating human health.”

Words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend” and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events, conditions or circumstances) convey uncertainty of future events or outcomes and are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs, projections, outlook, analyses or current expectations concerning, among other things, the ability for additional data to support the strength of OGM workflows as compared to traditional workflows, the ability and utility of OGM to analyze genomes and reveal answers in genetic disease and cancer research in less time-consuming and less-labor intensive manners than traditional workflows, and the potential for OGM to become part of the standard of care. Each of these forward-looking statements involves risks and uncertainties. Actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected or implied in these forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such a difference include the risks and uncertainties associated with: the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and the global economy; general market conditions; changes in the competitive landscape, including the introduction of competitive technologies or improvements in existing technologies; failure of future study results to support those demonstrated during the presentations referenced in this press release; changes in our strategic and commercial plans; our ability to obtain sufficient financing to fund our strategic plans and commercialization efforts; the ability of medical and research institutions to obtain funding to support adoption or continued use of OGM or our technologies; and the risks and uncertainties associated with our business and financial condition in general, including the risks and uncertainties described in our filings with the
