  • Bionano Genomics, Inc. is an engaging company operating in the genome mapping space.
  • The company generated $7.2m of revenues from 217 installed bases in Q322.
  • Performance of genetic testing developers, e.g., Illumina and PacBio, in 2022 has been poor.
  • Bionano is making bold M&A moves - such as the announcement of a $64m deal for Purigen last months - to try to grow market share.
  • Their market-in-waiting for genomic testing could be very significant, but it may not materialize for 5-10 years from now, making BNGO a lukewarm buy opportunity at best for the time being.
  • We're currently running a sale at my private investing ideas service, Haggerston BioHealth, where members get access to portfolios, market alerts, real-time chat, and more. Learn More »
