    How can I get a TFP test kit?

    I only have that expensive little cheezy one with batteries.
    The TFP kit is a world better, non? But can I buy it in France?

    I am very sorry, but Postal Regulations prohibit us from sending the kit via US mail to France. (or any other foreign country)

    Shipping via FedEx or UPS is outrageously expensive so we simply are unable to ship outside the 50 United States and US territories.

    I wish it were different.

    You know I do not understand why my countrypeople say americans are not polite. I find you are some most polite people with the kind words allways.

    Well, maybe there is enough described of your kit for me to make some like it here?

    Welcome

    Here is a post from a thread last year - a member from Sweden was trying to get a kit as well - one of our special contributors, Richard, recommended they try:

    If you click on the first link - you may be able to find something that is not perfect but as close as you can get.

    Thank you, I did just send some email to them in the UK to see if they sell kits in France too.

    Strike One with french distributor: "We've never heard of that kit. How do you spell Palintest?" they said. This is so often what life in France is like when you try to find the good stuff except food and wine. You folks in the America are lucky I understand. My brother in LA says you can buy anything in LA.

    But Palintest also give me the name of their german distributor. And I speak some German.
