What coolant test strips to use?

I have a early 99 7.3 that uses the green coolant. I am wanting to get some test strips to maintain the levels in the coolant. The bottle of Motorcraft diesel cooling system additive that I have says to use rotundra test kit 328-00001 or 328-00006. Are these the only test strips that will work, or are there any other ones that will work to test my coolant?

Is it the same type of test as the rotundra?
