Dear Justin.

The new control strip looks definatly better, the strange red values are OK now. If you do a wet prewash you will easily find some differences in the densitometers reading. This may be the reason for the differences in your blue readings, next to expired test strips. For my personal use I’ve abandoned a wet prewash in C41/homebrew for exact this reason. Have you printed the Negatives of the new run? Suppose they look pretty fine…
