What is Bionano Genomics and what do they do?

Put on your lab coat – this will get sciencey. Bionano Genomics is a global leader in the provision of optical genome mapping (OGM) solutions for genome analysis.

The company earns most of its revenue through sales of Saphyr, its genome mapping system, chip consumables, reagents and a suite of data analysis tools. 

According to Bionano Genomics, Saphyr allows researchers and clinicians “to accelerate the search for new diagnostics and therapeutic targets and to streamline the identification of structural changes in chromosomes, known as cytogenetics.”

Through their subsidiary, Lineagen, Bionano Genomics also runs diagnostic genetic testing for pediatric patients suspected of neurodevelopmental disabilities, in particular children.

The company was founded in 2003 by former Chief Scientific Officer and CEO, Han Cao. Bionano Genomics is currently headquartered in San Diego, California and run by CEO Erik Holmlin.
