When will test tubes become available?

Harvester ants nuptial flights are soon and I'm hoping to get a queen and I'm hoping to have AntsCanada's test tubes by then but it takes a little time to deliver and they have been out of stock for a while. Does anyone know when the test tubes will become available? I know the classic test tubes are available but I want to new one and it's pointless to buy the classic one and then buy the new ones when they become available.

Dude AntsCanada is a great site but they love making things over price XD you have a better and more cheaper way to get test tubes by going to a learing express or a learning zone store or just ordering them off amazon it will take a lot less time to arrive to you that's what i'd recommend

I've even seen people using syringes as a test tube for their queen and surprisingly, it worked for them.

You can keep saying this until it is a problem, Trust me just go with lcm labs where you can buy like 25 17x150mm test tubes (AntsCanada size) for 10$ (which is waaay cheaper and smarter).

When you buy those test tubes from the company and purchase the 17x150mm one, they legit instead send you 16x150mm. It's happened with me and another guy.

Our new custom-made test tubes should be available in about a week. They are in transit to our facility now. They are actually pretty darn nice! Much clearer than the classic ones, or the ones you can get on Amazon, and with a few cool features just for ant keepers. Plus they fit perfectly into the Test Tube Portals and come with adapters for connecting to the new Hybrid Nests and poly tubing.
