We just purchased tubes from Intermountain Scientific (800-999-2901) at $55 
per 125 strips of 8. It's the lowest price I have seen so far. The tubes are 
identical to those offered by Gold BioTechology (800-248-7609), further 
these tubes are easier to open and close compared to the Cetus. Sorry, no 
side-by-side comparison.
