    New test kit

    I want to order a new test kit since I am getting confusing readings. Right now it is well below freezing and expected to get colder this week. Will shipping from TFP ruin the kit in this weather?

    No, probably not...Just a guess, but I imagine it will be ok.

    Re: New test kit

    I can help with that a bit. We will ship any order immediately the day it is received. That said, you certainly don't want the reagents to freeze.

    So, shipping to Massachusetts during a cold snap is probably not a good idea....especially if you don't get it out of your mailbox for a day. Virtually all shipping has a reasonable degree of freeze protection until it's delivered and then all bets are off.

    I suspect you won't be able to test much anyway for a while so I would suggest you wait until it warms up a bit.
