Some context sure would be nice. What is a "general" test panel machine? The phrase "Test Panel" (used with or without a hyphen in German) can refer to a business test panel (see excerpt and URL below) or a medical test panel (see second excerpt and URL below). I have generally encountered the term in the latter context, i.e. test panels for medical/biochemical/chemical analyses.

Das umstrittene Business Test Panel, welches zur Einschätzung von europäischen Gesetzgebungsvorhaben dienen soll, wird fortgeführt. Die Kommission hat hierzu einen Fortschrittsbericht vorgelegt und einige Gesetzgebungsinitiativen vorgeschlagen, die für ein Business Test Panel in Frage kämen. Von Seiten des Bundeswirtschaftsministeriums (BMWi) wurde die Elektronik-Schrott-Initiative vorgeschlagen. Das BMWi wird sich bei der Kommission dafür einsetzen, daß der derzeitige Zeitraum von drei Wochen zur Beantwortung des Fragebogens verlängert wird. (AB)

Without any further context, that's the best I can do.

If your context does refer to medical tests, then the above will work for you. I have been working with a large medical technology company lately (active on both sides of the big pond) that uses "test panel" and "test profile" interchangeably, and both are translated as Testprofil.
