A Starfleet test cylinder is a standard mechanism with a varietal molecular matrix that simulates most known organic and non-organic compounds. The Romulans possess a similar device.

Following the discovery of the Harry Kim wormhole in the Delta Quadrant by the USS Voyager in 2371, it was determined that a transporter signal could be transmitted through a microprobe relay lodged in the micro-wormhole. With the assistance of a signal amplifier aboard the Romulan science vessel Talvath, located in the Alpha Quadrant, a test cylinder was used to determine the safety of the transport. After more than twenty successful transports it was deemed safe to transport a test subject through the micro-wormhole. (VOY: "Eye of the Needle")
