Optical Genome Mapping

Bionano Optical Genome Mapping (OGM) revolutionises genomic analysis by using single-molecule imaging based on long DNA fragments migration into nanochannels. This cutting-edge technology enables genome mapping with unprecedented precision, revealing structural variations, large-scale rearrangements and complex genomic profile. By providing comprehensive information on DNA organisation, Bionano’s platform enables a better understanding of genetic variations, improving the detection of genomic alterations.


Main applications

  • Genomic research
  • Detection of structural variations
