SAN DIEGO, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today announced its participation at the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) 2022 Congress with scientific and poster presentations highlighting the application of OGM for solid tumor analysis and cancer research.

EACR 2022 is a four-day congress dedicated to basic, preclinical, and translational cancer research. EACR sessions will take place June 20-23, 2022 in Seville, Spain. Bionano will exhibit all of its solutions relevant to cancer research, including the Saphyr system, NxClinical software, and expert laboratory services. The latest version of NxClinical software, version 6.2, includes integrated genomic scar analysis for homologous recombination deficiency (HRD). This feature provides a comprehensive, consistent, and automated analysis of biomarkers from next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray data that can help clinical researchers stratify therapeutic response across multiple tumor types.

A corporate satellite session, titled “See More, Know More: Bionano Helps You Go Deeper in the Understanding of Your Complex Samples,” will feature genomics researchers highlighting use of OGM in solid tumor analysis. Alicia Bertolotti from Bionano will present an overview of OGM’s capabilities in high sensitivity structural variation (SV) detection for cancer research. Dr. Sylvia Genovese from Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital will present on the use of OGM as part of a comprehensive strategy for detection of pediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumors. Dr. Juan Díaz-Martín from Institute of Biomedicine of Sevilla (IBiS) will present on research into SV detection for Ewing sarcoma (ES) prognostic markers.

Scientific presentations and poster sessions from Bionano and collaborators include:
