Bionano stock down ~8% after hours; co reports Q2 revenue beat, wider loss

Shares of small-cap pharmaceutical company Bionano Genomics (NASDAQ:BNGO) fell 8.1% to $2.16 in Thursday postmarket trading, after the genome analysis firm reported a wider Q2 loss and a significant fall in quarterly gross margin. It is worth noting that BNGO stock had gained 27% since Tuesday and posted a three-day winning streak at today's close. BNGO announced Q2 net loss of $32.16M compared to a loss of $18.79M last year. However, its revenue of $6.67M grew a healthy 72.8% Y/Y and beat estimates by $0.39M. The company said the quarterly figure was an all-time high for it. Revenue growth was aided by expansion of the installed base of BNGO's Saphyr sytems and a 24% Y/Y rise in sales of nanochannel array flowcells. The company's bottom line was hurt due to a 87.2% Y/Y rise in total operating expenses to $33.55M. BNGO CEO Erik Holmlin said that the company remained on track to achieve its previously outlined ELEVATE! milestones for the second half of the year. Bionano Geonomics (BNGO) stock has lost 21.4% YTD.

Bionano gets US patent for analysis of nucleic acid fragments for genetic abnormalities

Bionano Genomics (NASDAQ:BNGO) said the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent related to methods claiming the use of certain nanochannel arrays to detect and quantitate genetic abnormalities. The U.S. patent No.11,359,244 titled Characterization of Molecules in Nanofluidics, claims methods for analyzing small nucleic acid fragments in nanochannel arrays, which Bionano has used to analyze ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) DNA for the identification of structural variants (SVs) as part of its Saphyr system, the company said in a June 29 press release. Bionano added the methods claim the use of certain nanochannel arrays to detect and quantitate genetic abnormalities, including a DNA translocation, amplification, inversion, and sex chromosome aneuploidy, among other things. The company said it believes that the methods in the patent may one day support the commercialization of assays directed to non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) in maternal fetal medicine or ctDNA in oncology.
