As one of the first test centres for ROTEM® sigma, he afforded us an interview.
How long have you been using the ROTEM® system and why?
After we extensively compared the TEG® system with the ROTEG, we implemented thromboelastometry in 1999 in the Graz University (Austria) laboratory.

Thromboelastometry insights became the basis for a timely and targeted coagulation therapy in the peri-operative setting.
What have been your experiences with the ROTEM® sigma?
Being an “old” ROTEM® user who likes to pipette and to perform new analytical […]
