Bionano Genomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:BNGO) announced that presentation recordings from its 5-day Next-Generation Cytogenomics Symposium, which took place from January 11 to 15 and featured 33 presentations by Saphyr users, are now available online on the company’s website and its YouTube page. This event was by far its highest attended to date, with more than 15,500 session registrations and more than 6,400 session views from around the world. With the presentation recordings now available online, the impact of the event can continue to grow and expand awareness of Bionano Genomics and its Saphyr system for optical genome mapping and structural variation analysis.
The event brought together scientists from leading hospitals and medical research institutions from the United States, Europe, China and Australia and covered applications of optical genome mapping (OGM) with Saphyr to study a variety of genetic diseases, blood cancers, solid tumors and repeat disorders as well as the studies supporting validation of clinical assays developed by Saphyr users. The last day of the symposium was dedicated to the study of the genomes of severely ill COVID-19 patients.
Erik Holmlin, PhD, CEO of Bionano Genomics, commented: “The symposium was our most prominent showcase to date of how Saphyr comprehensively detects structural variations in a wide range of clinical and research applications. We are pleased by the enthusiasm we have seen from the scientific community around the world, and the impact of the symposium on our effort to sell Saphyr systems and access to its data through our services and reagent rental programs has been immediate. The availability of this scientific content on YouTube makes its discovery easy and continue to educate our customers on the power of Saphyr data.”
