NEW YORK – Bionano Genomics reported a 226 percent year-over-year increase in second quarter revenues after the close of the market on Wednesday.

For the quarter ended June 30, Bionano reported $3.9 million in revenues, up from $1.2 million in the year-ago period and beating the average Wall Street analyst estimate of $3.5 million.
