What are peoples thoughts on online test sales for research use only that are being sold online, could they be counterfeit or genuine tests from abroad?

I would not bother. If you think you have the virus - self-isolate. If this confirms you have the virus, it does not change anything. If it shows you do not have the virus, do you really want to risk the health of your family and friends based on the results of a dodgy test kit bought on the internet...

I wouldn't touch these right now. Every tragedy gives rise to scams. If these were available so easily, why are governments struggling to ramp up testing, other than being government?
About as real as the Nigerian Prince that used to email everyone
Fake don't touch them until we hear officially about them.
Not aware so no thoughts to share.
Sorry.
Tests for medical research wouldn’t be sold as they’re required to get approval.

The rats in society always emerge to make a quick buck in dark times-despicable.
Or duds that are not accurate.
Just heard this story on the radio here's a web version of it:

Spain bought 640,000 FAULTY coronavirus testing kits from China that can’t even tell whether a patient is sick
