    Hello

    Just purchased some Fuji medical dupe film and it calls for a Fuji Safelight Glass No. 8U. Anyone know what this translates to? I'm assuming your average amber safelight will do but thought I would ask.

    The description states dark reddish orange. the Amber very likely will work IF it is not close , more the 4 ft., and does not ever directly shine on the film. Take some of the film and test, leave in the light, cover a portion immediately and after each of 30, 60, 120, 240 and 480 sec. If it is less then 120 You'll need a different safe light.
