    No. It's a different technology. Your best bet is to try pods from FP-100C and FP-3000B and try those.

    I know the pods contained an alkaline agent that waas gelled. I am not sure of the developing agent was in the pod chemistry, or incorporated into the film itslef, and just needed the alkaaline reagent to activate it.

    It might be worth a try of using a strong contrast fil developer, like D19, as a try as a dunk option. Expose an 8x10 to a test target, and then progressively lower the sheet into a tray at 15 second intervals to see if you get any sort of an image on any of the stripes of varied times.

    I may be way off base, but I always like to experiment with expired films.

    You might want to try contacting 20x24 studios. They have a large supply of polaroid materials and might be able to sell you some pods.
