I would second the use of 3rd party software for color negative conversion.  If it's a photography science experiment and hobby feel free to develop your own process and profiles.  I suppose it could be a fun project if that's your type of thing.  If the goal is to convert negatives then I think 3rd party software is the way to go.

I have tested out Negative Lab Pro and I think it is very good.  I haven't gotten up the energy to start my full scale conversion process yet.  VueScan is also pretty good and it's not just for scanners, as the name might imply.  It goes without saying that the light source used for the negative capture is the first step in getting good conversions.
