I've been playing around with this, and from my experimenting type 52 cannot be revived with other reagent pods, at least not the ones I've tried. I tried type 664 reagent pods with type 54 (worked well, but that makes sense since 664 and 54 were virtually the same), with type 53 (also worked well), but with type 52 I got nothing, no reaction. Not sure why. Maybe the chemicals were of a totally different sort.

I'm not saying you shouldn't try, but if my experience is any indication you may be wasting your type 54 chemistry on type 52.
