Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today announced its participation at the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) 2022 Conference, with 13 scientific and poster presentations highlighting the application of OGM across rare undiagnosed genetic disease and genetic disorders. Additionally, Bionano and Hamilton will present the Long String VANTAGE, the world’s first automation solution for UHMW extraction used in OGM.

ESHG is an annual conference that brings together industry and academic professionals to discuss new technologies and advances in the field of human genetics. ESHG sessions will take place June 11-14, 2022 virtually and in Vienna, Austria.

Bionano and Hamilton jointly announced the Long String VANTAGE, which is the first Assay Ready Workstation solution in Hamilton´s Long String Genomics product program which supports extraction of UHMW DNA at increased scale. Attendees at ESHG will be able to learn more about the Long String VANTAGE at both companies’ booths and can experience a demonstration of the workflow at Hamilton’s booth throughout the conference.

As part of a corporate satellite presentation, Dr. Detlef Trost from Laboratoire CERBA, and Dr. Alexander Hoischen from Radboud UMC, will share their latest research on OGM for RUGD.

Three genomics researchers will participate in separate featured scientific presentations, highlighting use of OGM in genetic disorder testing. Dr. Claudia Carvalho of the Pacific Northwest Research Institute will present on complex genomic rearrangement structures (CGRs) in neurodevelopmental disorders. Dr. Laïla El Khattabi will present on a recent study highlighting the OGM in the characterization of complex SVs. Dr. Kornelia Neveling from Radboud UMC will present on repeat expansion disorder testing using OGM.

Scientific presentations and poster sessions from Bionano and customers include:

“We are thrilled to see the broad range of presentations featuring OGM at ESHG this year. These institutions and their research teams have conducted innovative research to help demonstrate the potential utility of OGM as a more sensitive, faster and less expensive alternative to traditional cytogenetics methods,” commented Erik Holmlin, president and chief executive officer of Bionano. “We are also excited for attendees to learn more about our collaboration with Hamilton and the Long String VANTAGE automation system. We believe this innovation can significantly reduce time to results, reduce hands on time and improve OGM performance by standardizing the process of UHMW DNA isolation, and we look forward to sharing more at ESHG.”
