PCR gargle test in 1010 Vienna

The gargle test in self application according to PCR method is the new alternative to the PCR throat swab test. You can perform the safe gargle test yourself at home or outdoors. Afterwards, you simply hand in the sample to us. Your test result will be available within 24 hours. Order and pay for the gargle test right here to avoid unnecessary waiting times.


Precise testing without waiting times

Fast results within minutes or hours

For the PCR tests we work with renowned Vienna laboratories, which collect the samples several times a day. The analyses are done around the clock. Usually the results are available electronically within 24 hours. The antigen rapid test and the antibody test can be performed on-site and after about 15 minutes a result is available.

No waiting times

If you book an appointment, fill out the form online and pay in advance. You will briefly stay and enjoy the fastest possible processing. With our rapid tests, you will be informed very quickly by mail after the result is available.

Digital Certificate with QR-Code

All test procedures are officially recognised by the authorities. Findings are issued in German and English and signed by a doctor. For PCR tests, you will also receive a EU digital certificate with QR code.

In order for you to know within a few hours whether you have been infected with the coronavirus, we also offer the safe gargle test in self application. The gargle test is a PCR test and has a high sensitivity and specificity for SARS-CoV-2. It is therefore considered a safe procedure and is suitable for anyone who can gargle. After you have carried out the test yourself and handed in the sample at Dermacare in Vienna, the results of the test are evaluated in a Vienna laboratory.



What is a PCR gargle test?

For the gargle test, we provide you with a saline solution (part of the test kit) which you gargle for one minute. Then spit the liquid into a sample container. Using the PCR method, the sample is then examined and analyzed by employees of Vienna laboratories. Thus, if necessary, the genetic material of the coronavirus can be directly detected in the sample taken.

How does the test work?

You collect your test kit from Dermacare and can then perform the test either outdoors or at your home. Please read the instructions carefully and make sure that no other people are in the immediate vicinity during gargling or testing.

All you have to do is gargle the saline solution we provide (as part of the test kit) for one minute and then spit the liquid into a sample cup. Many patients find the gargling process much more comfortable compared to the conventional PCR throat swab. Afterwards, you bring the sample to us. Several times a day, these samples are collected by laboratory staff and within 24 hours you will receive your result by email.

Here is an overview of the process again:

1) Pick up the test kit at Dermacare

2) After carefully reading the instructions, perform the gargle test independently at home or outdoors

Note: The issue and receipt of the test kits is

  • Monday to Friday from 9.00-16.30, Saturday 8.00-12.00
  • only on the first floor of Dermacare – entrance Morzinplatz

3) Bring the sample to us afterwards – no appointment is necessary!

4) Within 24 hours you will receive the findings by e-mail*

When is a gargle test in self-application useful?

The gargle test in self-application is particularly useful if you have no symptoms, but still want to be sure that you are not infected with the coronavirus. Employees of companies like to use our test to protect themselves and their environment in the best possible way before a training or event. Many people find the throat swab too unpleasant and therefore use the gargle test as an adequate alternative.

What else do you need to know?

All corona tests at Dermacare are only for people without classic corona symptoms. If you already have symptoms such as dry cough, fever or sore throat, please stay home and call the Health Hotline under 1450 or contact your family doctor. You can also have someone else bring your sample to our institute. However, this person must bring your eCard and a photo ID of you so that we can match the sample to the right person. For the gargle test in self-application you will receive a medical report in German and English. This is not suitable for border crossings and does not serve to end the official quarantine.

Important notes

If you are bringing a test for someone else, please make sure you bring the eCard and a photo ID of the person for whom the test analysis is being done.

Did (a.o) a laser treatment of my acne scars. The result (after the first session) is already much better than expected and is an extremely big relief for me. I'm super happy! Generally, I always felt very accommodated here. Still, Dr. Cseh is by far the most... competent but also the most friendly dermatologist I have ever consulted!read more

Ich entferne mein Tattoo am Oberarm schon seit 1 und halb Jahren. Die ersten 10-12 Behandlungen war ich bei einer netten Hautärztin in Niederösterreich. Die Behandlungen mit einem Rubinlaser (wie ich kürzlich erfuhr) dauerten anfangs 15 Minuten und zum... Schluss dann 10-12 Minuten. Es war sehr schmerzhaft und danach blutete das Tattoo so stark, dass ich einige Tage ein Verband tragen musste. Die Schmerzen nach dem Lasern, waren überraschender weise, fast schlimmer als die Behandlung selbst! Einige Narben, hatten sich dadurch auch gebildet. Kein Wunder, bei den Krusten!Trotzdem dachte ich, ist halt so, wenn man sich ein Tattoo entfernen lässt ! Also Augen zu und durch!Da es einfach schon ewig dauerte, und auch kein Ende in Sicht war, entschloss ich meine nächste Sitzung bei DermaCare zu haben. Auch wenn ich wusste, das es um einiges teurer sein würde. Und ich muss ehrlich sagen, das ich schwer begeistert bin!Die Behandlung dauerte nicht mal 2 Minuten.Von den Schmerzen her, war es schon intensiv aber doch aushaltbar. Und viel lauter als der Rubinlaser. Aber das war auch aushaltbar! Ohne Betäubung das ganze noch dazu!Meine Hautfläche war danach gerötet. Aber keine Stelle meiner Haut hat geblutet!Ich bekam eine Creme und ein Verband und das wars. Völlig unkompliziert und das Team war noch dazu überaus professionell und freundlich!Nach der Sitzung, spürte ich schon das etwas auf meinem Oberarm gemacht worden ist. Nur von Schmerzen war das sehr weit entfernt. Eher so ein leichtes ziehen auf der Hautoberfläche und sah aus wie eine Brandwunde. Halb so wild ;) Nach keinen 2-3 Tagen ist alles gut abgeheilt und wird jetzt Wochen später schon deutlich heller! Bin gespannt auf die nächsten Monaten und den Prozess dieser Tattooentfernung bei DermaCare.read more
