Dear Colleagues

   We are considering to get a carbon evaporator here.
   The available model would be EMITECH K950X.
   I am wondering whether it is necessary to make our own carbon film
   while carbon-coated copper grids are available on the market.
   Is it worth to buy a carbon evaporator if we are only focusing on  
single-particle reconstruction
   and tomography with cryo-EM or with negative stain.

   We will appreciate your comments on this issue.
