English term or phrase: test kit
Definition from AOAC International:
A test kit is a commercially packaged system of the principal or key components of an analytical method used to determine the presence of a specific analyte(s) in a given matrix. Test kits include directions for their use and are often self contained, complete analytical systems; but they may require supporting supplies and equipment. The key components frequently represent proprietary elements or reagents that may be readily prepared only by the producer of the kit.
