Hello Lars Gusch, Development Manager. Could you tell us about your background and why you’ve chosen this field of occupation?
I have worked in the medical device sector my entire career, covering almost all aspects of the lifecycle of a medical product. I got my start as an application engineer for image guided surgery systems at BrainLAB right after finishing my studies in 1999. Shortly afterwards, I dived deeper into product support for the spinal navigation systems of the company, managing service and quality assurance for that product line.
My work as application specialist for BrainLAB and Nucletron brought me to Sweden, where I live with my family near Uppsala, one of the strongholds of Swedish medical technology. As Manager of Engineering for the software development department at Elekta, I coordinated the introduction and maintenance of best practice software engineering based on lean and agile methods. The multi-faceted work in an international team also inspired me during my latest assignment as Global After Sales and Support Manager for C-RAD, which brought me back to the more operational level of medical devices.
Now I am very happy for the opportunity to lead Pharmacolog’s development team to greater success.
Pharmacolog are introducing two new product concepts, WasteLog™ and PrepLog™, to address drug control in different integrated environments. What are the main benefits of these new products?
In my view, the introduction of WasteLog™ and PrepLog™ is the next logical step for our product portfolio. Based on the clinically proven DrugLog® technology, we will be able to offer a tailor-made solution for quality control of pharmaceuticals. WasteLog™ and PrepLog™ will both increase efficiency and safety for the individual clinical scenarios, users and patients. As we are developing these solutions in close cooperation with our clinical partners, I am sure that the market will take to them quickly.
