LAB-BOX 135/120 Module
LAB-BOX is a multi-format daylight developing tank that allows users to develop film from start to end, in full daylight, bypassing the need to load the rolls in the dark.
LAB-BOX Pro Lid
The LAB-BOX Professional Lid is an accessory that can be used with any LAB-BOX developing tank, offering a professional alternative to the standard lid. It includes a built-in timer and thermometer, which is especially useful for processes that need a special attention to the temperature like color negative (C-41) and color reversal (E-6).
The Professional Lid has a stainless steel probe which can measure the liquid temperature inside the tank during the process, to help you control and manage development. The lid has also an integrated timer that can be set in 15 second increments. Users can also save 3 different times which can immediately be set through the T1, T2, T3 buttons.
The TCS-1000 immersion circulator/thermostat allows you to efficiently and easily mix concentrates and powder chemicals, heat them up to the precise processing temperature, and maintain it during the entire developing session. It also features an intuitive interface preset for standard C-41 processing, which can be easily adjusted for any process. Universal design holds two 1000ml storage bottles in a tub, sink, or basin of your preference. **This is the 1500W, 120V/60Hz, 1000W US power plug model. For 220-240V,50/60Hz VDE power plug please order from our European distributor.
The LAB-BOX Crank is an optional accessory that can be used instead of the standard knob. It allows you to comfortably agitate while processing, especially when using continuous agitation.
Cs41 "Color Simplified" For Color Processing At Home (C-41 Chemistry)
Processing ANY color negative film at home is easy with these 2 simple chemistry mixtures, reusable for up to 24 rolls of film!
DF96 "Developer&Fix"B&W Monobath, Single-Step Solution, 540ml
This versatile, single-step “Developer&Fix” monobath solution is perfect for processing any black & white film in minutes, with no need for stop bath, fixer, or any other chemicals. 540ml of reusable chemistry will develop 8 rolls of film.
Designed for the safe retrieval of 35mm film leader from inside the rewound film cassette, this quick and easy tool helps you load your film onto a developing tank reel in daylight without exposing the film.
°Cs 1000ml Chemistry Mixing Jug/Pitcher (2)
Dedicated 1000ml jug/pitcher for mixing chemistry. Graduated measurements in milliliters and US fluid ounces. Features "Dev." and "Blix" water level markings for easy mixing of the Cs41 Quart kit.
°Cs 1000ml Collapsible Storage Bottles (2)
These accordion-like bottles with screw-on cap are designed for storing darkroom chemistries that are sensitive to light and air. Made of durable and opaque plastic, they bottles can be compressed, allowing the volume of the bottle to be adapted to match the amount of liquid in it and reducing the risk of oxidation. Chemicals stored in these bottles last longer when compared to conventional bottles.
