Gargle to fight the Corona Pandemic.

LEAD Horizon's patented test kit for self-testing for COVID-19 was developed very early in the Corona-pandemic and has seen a smashing success. It has literally revolutionized the way Austrians regard Corona prevention. The unique „gargle test“ (mouthwash) was developed in close collaboration with the widely renowned Austrian virologist and Co-founder of LEAD Horizon, Professor Christoph Steininger. The collection of samples by means of throat rinsing has been recognized and recommended by the WHO. 

LEAD Horizon Gargle Test

Scientific research has confirmed that LEAD Horizon’s unique „gargle test“ (mouth wash test) is highly effective and safe. In a direct head-to-head comparison between a nasal swab and the gargle test, the home sampling kit from LEAD Horizon was demonstrated to provide a robust and reliable procedure to obtain valid PCR samples both at under supervision of a Health Care Professional and during at-home use.
