Takashi is right. There is no objection to use a GIF with a 200kV
Tecnai. 300kV are only used for thicker samples in a range up to 500nm
(depending on how crowded the cells are even less than that).
If you buy it via Gatan you can have a standalone version (separate PC
running Digital Micrograph and Filter Control communicating via a com-
link with the microscope PC). If you decide to have it fully embedded
in the Tecnai User Interface and running on only one PC, than you need
to buy this embedding from FEI additionally, or buy the whole setup
from FEI directly (in principle they have to upgrade your Tecnai
customer dongle with the proper licences, which will activate the

I am wondering whether anyone here has installed an energy filter

My suspicion is that it should be straightforward, and significantly
improve performance with tomography (in the zero-loss mode).
It would nice to have confirmation of this, however. Does anyone have
direct experience? Or is it that 300kV instruments are universally
used in cryo applications with the GIF?
Thanks for your help!
