As a quality control laboratory manager at Grupa HASCO in Poland, Maciej Giel is responsible for releasing raw materials and final products from quality control to qualified persons who then release them to the market. Given his academic background, his role was a natural next step.
“I completed my studies in biotechnology and have always been interested in health care,” said Maciej. “After school, I had the opportunity to work for a great company in Poland, and it was a simple choice to jump right into the professional health care industry.” Grupa HASCO is heavily involved in defining, creating, and advancing the future of the industry. The organization develops the latest, cutting-edge technologies and helps foster the next generation of talent by teaching pharmacy students at a nearby university.
A large part of Maciej’s day-to-day work involves communicating with his colleagues and initiating critical discussions about solving their toughest challenges. “We discuss emerging problems in quality control and the best way to solve these problems,” shared Maciej. But, of course, we are not robots. We also talk about our lives outside of work, our children, our relatives, and our passions and hobbies. It’s an important part of developing relationships with people you see every day.”
While Maciej relies on several different applications created by Phenomenex to complete his work, his favorite part of working with the organization is the constant support they provide him and his team. “We have used other chromatography columns in the past, but we prefer Phenomenex because their columns are the highest quality,” said Maciej. “In addition, we always have support from the representatives at Phenomenex. If there is ever any chromatography problem, they’re quick to jump on a call and help us in whatever way they can.”
