New staff member for BIRU

10 February 2014


Dr Pritika Narayan has been appointed to support and run the newly installed high content screening system, the Molecular Devices ImageXpress Micro XLS.


She has 10 years of experience specialising in High Content Screening (HCS) through various roles at the University of Auckland. This has included championing the use of HCS on the Discovery-1 machine, an automated widefield fluorescence and transmitted light imaging platform, coupled with MetaMorph image analysis.


During this time, she also completed a PhD that utilised HCS methods in the analysis of a diverse range of cell based and histological experiments.


Pritika says that she "thrives on problem solving and taking on new challenges and enjoys getting alongside her colleagues to support them in their research".
