    Developed another two rolls on sunday as described above: Lowered/absent general stain, nice specific stain, time seems to be spot on. The Pryocat is still red but much lighter.

    Thanks to everyone. I think I can close this case.

    Stefan,

    I am just wondering if you are not leaving some of the magenta colored anit-halation backing in the film. In my work with TMAX 400 I have never been able to get rid of this reddish/magenta color with normal processing. What does work for me in remvoing the color is to soak the film, after fixing, in a solution of sodium carbonate, using about one spoon of carbonatge per liter of water. This additional alkaliity will generally remove the stain with a soaking gof 10-15 minutes.

    Sandy,

    I found it hard to reliably remove the antihalation dyes from Tmax too. After I switched to two-bath fixing in alkaline TF3 the antihalation dyes are much more easy to remove in the wash and with non-staining developers I can hardly tell if I have 400TMY or APX100 drying in the shower unless I take a closer look. The colour of the film in question also wasn't purple but more like a 320TXP left to long in an used-developer-afterbath, like I did when I tested films for pyrocat.
