[3dem] cryo blades

Hi everyone,

Happy new year!

I am looking at repurposing a Tecnai T20 LaB6 to do some cryo work. It has a super twin objective lens and therefore cannot accommodate a cryo box. I know that both FEI and Gatan have cryo blades as an alternative to the cryo box. I wonder if anyone has experience with either of the blades. Contamination rates? Realistically how many samples changes per day with e.g. a 626 holder?

Many thanks
