    Unicolor C-41 Fixer and Stabilizer with Panchromatic Film?

    So I am thinking of picking up some Tri-X in 120 for my Mamiya RZ67 and was wondering if I can use the blix and stabilizer from my Unicolor kit on panchromatic film?

    Of course I would pick up a dedicated black and white developer (I was thinking Xtol, but would definitely be open to other suggestions).

    Thanks!

    Unless I am very very wrong the answer is no. You need fix for B&W.

    NO, NO, NO!!! The blix will destroy your negatives. I would suggest that you read up on what these solutions do and their proper use.

    Jerry is right. Do not ever use blix or bleach on B&W films.

    Unless you want a nice clear piece of film base.

    Haha sorry for the dumb question guys, I usually stick to BW400CN so I can use C-41 chemicals with that. I want to give Tri-X another shot but the local professional lab takes a couple weeks to get it processed

    If you process BW400CN in a B&W developer, you still cannot use a blix or a bleach then fix. You need a color developer with this film.
