Australia's  main hospital ,  Royal Chlidren's Hospital have the speical paper for the Phen test and Monash Hospital have these faclities as well. The needle pens are widespread use here in Aus as they used  for getting blood suger samples and  Phen levels  for people here who have these aliments.

I got my needle pen from my local Chemist. It was normally a blood sugar sample pricking pen, but can be used for Phen tests as well, As I need  to take blood samples from my fingers for dabbing one the speicald paper for Phen level test..

The test are sent a way to some these hospital I listed, the Royal Children's Hospital have speical Lab where they can measure the amount of Phen the person has on his/her's blood sample.
