Bionano Genomics announces publication of study using OGM

SAN DIEGO, September 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today announced the publication of a study that uses OGM to discover coding balanced chromosomal rearrangements (BCRs) found in people who have experienced recurrent pregnancy loss. (RPL). Compared with conventional cytogenetic methods, OGM was successful in identifying the reciprocal coding translocation in all samples, which improved the success rate in finding pathogenic variants of coding BCRs and simplified the discovery process.

The researchers analyzed samples from 11 couples who had treated RPL, had a history of having a baby or fetus with a chromosome loss or gain, or had a history of infertility to determine the usefulness of OGM for detecting encoded BCRs, which can significantly increase the risk of delivering abnormal offspring with Congenital malformations or miscarriages for carrier couples. The OGM showed 100% concordance with the results of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and sequencing analyzes and revealed additional complex rearrangement events such as inverted aberrations, further improving potential genetic interpretation. The study authors highlighted the challenges associated with using traditional methods and cited the rapid and robust OGM detection of high-resolution encoded BCRs as evidence for their potential application as a first-line method in routine clinical genetic testing.

Eric Holmlin, Ph.D., President and CEO of Bionano, commented, “This study demonstrates OGM support in an area that we believe may be very beneficial for people with infertility and pregnancy loss. We are pleased to see the researchers recommending OGM as an initial way to replace traditional methods, some of which have been It’s been around for 50 years.”
