Bionano also disclosed that it is expecting to report a nearly 18 percent jump in revenues for the third quarter.

The company's revenues were driven by its centralized and point-of-care solutions as well as its molecular diagnostics business, both rising in the single digits.

The company said the revenue growth was driven by growing international demand for its noninvasive prenatal testing products and services.
