With the new Ars-Imago MB mono bath film developer, you can develop and fix at the same time with only one bath!

This highly concentrated all-in-one developer, for black and white films, produces negatives that have medium-high contrast with a real and evenly-balanced tone scale.

Just mix Part A and Part B to get 500ml of working solution in a jug. Pour the solution into the developing tank and 8 minutes is all it takes at 20 degrees C for most black and white film to be developed (and fixed). No stop bath required.

You can re-use the working solution several times in a couple of weeks or the stock solution can be diluted 1:1 and used as one shot developer.

You can achieve the best results with conventional cubic-grain films like Ilford's HP5 and FP4, Kodak Tri-X or Kentmere. It is not recommended to use MOnobath with T-Grain films like Ilford Delta or Kodak T-Max.

This fast, easy and efficient solution to developing your black and white films, with only one chemical bath, makes it's an ideal companion to the new Lab-Box from Ars-Imago too.
