SAN DIEGO, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq:
BNGO) today announced it largest presence to date at the 2021 Annual Clinical
Genetics Meeting of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics
(ACMG), which is being held in a virtual format from April 13-16, 2021. The
meeting features a total of sixteen presentations by Saphyr customers and
Bionano scientists, almost three times the number presented last year and
nearly all based on work done in the United States.

“ACMG this year has the greatest number of presentations featuring Bionano
data to date,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, CEO of Bionano Genomics. “We
believe this multitude of presentations shows how significant Bionano’s
presence and that of optical genome mapping (OGM) has become in the medical
genetics community. The progress we are seeing here from the US market, where
almost all the data being presented at ACMG comes from, is particularly
encouraging since the US has a higher barrier to adoption that could be
addressed with data outlining the value proposition of our products and
technology. We are thrilled to share this important clinical data in all four
main target segments (prenatal, postnatal/constitutional genetics, blood
cancers and solid tumor analysis) at the meeting.”

About the ACMG Meeting

The ACMG Meeting is the genetics meeting most focused specifically on the
practical applications of genetic discoveries to clinical medicine. Topics
range from common conditions to rare diseases. The ACMG Annual Meeting
attracts medical and scientific leaders from around the world who are working
to apply research in genetics and the human genome to the diagnosis,
management, treatment and prevention of genetic conditions and rare and common
diseases in patients in the clinical setting.

About Bionano Genomics

Bionano is a genome analysis company providing tools and services based on its
Saphyr system to scientists and clinicians conducting genetic research and
patient testing, and providing diagnostic testing for those with autism
spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disabilities through its
Lineagen business. Bionano’s Saphyr system is a research use only platform
for ultra-sensitive and ultra-specific structural variation detection that
enables researchers and clinicians to accelerate the search for new
diagnostics and therapeutic targets and to streamline the study of changes in
chromosomes, which is known as cytogenetics. The Saphyr system is comprised of
an instrument, chip consumables, reagents and a suite of data analysis tools.
Bionano provides genome analysis services to provide access to data generated
by the Saphyr system for researchers who prefer not to adopt the Saphyr system
in their labs. Lineagen has been providing genetic testing services to
families and their healthcare providers for over nine years and has performed
over 65,000 tests for those with neurodevelopmental concerns. For more
