    I have usually processed my Efke IR820 in the school's chemistry but due to an issue with fixer being put in the developer bottle (third time I've heard of this sort of thing happening), I am going to develop it with my own fixer/developer.

    I have D76 and Kodafix (which I believe has a hardener) and was wondering if this will yield positive results.

    Any other input on developers/fixers appreciated.

    D76 & Kodafix are basically the standards by which all such chemistry is
    judged so I wouldn't hesitate to use them.

    There are many B&W developers, each with their own characteristics and
    this is one of the things that makes B&W processing so interesting and
    creative.

    If you wish to learn more about darkroom chemistry in general and the
    advantages and/or disadvantages of various types I recommend the
    books The Darkroom Cookbook and The Film Developing Cookbook, both by
    Steve Anchell.

    A good summary of "developer science" can be found here:

    you can use D76 with EKFE IR films. I have done this and it worked fine. But the best results (I mean my wanted IR effect with dark sky and white leaves) was optained using Ilford Microphen.
