That is a very sturdy handle. Did I see it on a previous series prop? It seams familiar.
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

The tool in the Doctor's left hand looks like a modified.. whadjamacallit, that thing some people briefly thought might be the basis for the 3rd Doctor's Sonic... a chiropractors tool!

The thing on the left looks like a TOS hypospray.

I think they may have also been spinal activators with a cup on the bottom to fit drug ampules into.

... and also that this was done utilizing the backdrop of Wardenclyffe!

I must say... it's certainly great of the writers to have come up with a story helping to give a boost to the efforts of the folks involved in establishing the new Tesla Science Center!

The toolkit looks like it was built from the stripped chassis of an Alienware Area-51 gaming PC.

Lucky find for prop builders given the rarity and cost of those computers.

The cases pop up on eBay occasionally. I suspect there's a third party that manufactures similar cases (or maybe even the actual chassis that Alienware just attach custom plastic parts to), but I haven't been able to track it down.
