DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03018-0

[…] tf20 tem (five series) and a zeiss libra 120 plus tem (15 series). on the fei tecnai tf20 tem (operated at 200 kv), the tilt series were collected from − 48 ° to + 48 ° at 1.5 ° increment using ucsf tomography software package and a gatan k2 summit direct electron detection camera at ~ 1 μm defocus and a magnification of 19 kx. at this magnification, the pixel size of the micrographs […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1006999

[…] microscope (fei) equipped with a gif energy filter (gatan) and a k2 summit direct detector (gatan). tilt-series were collected from -50° to +50° in 1° increments at magnification of 22,500x using ucsf tomography software [] with a defocus of -12 μm and total dosage of 180 e-/å2. tomograms were calculated using imod software []., rosetta(de3)plyss e. coli cells containing overexpression […]

PMCID: 4941525
PMID: 27403922
DOI: 10.1038/srep29231

[…] incorporated into a gatan digital micrograph (dm)-based tomography software, integrating both manual and automated data collection., in our method, compared to other et control software, such as ucsf tomography and serial em (), the major benefits include keeping the pre-aligned/optimized beam conditions unchanged and achieving position tracking solely through mechanical (goniometer) […]

[…] operation using gatan tomography software (for zeiss libra 120 tem) that had been preinstalled in the microscopes. micrographs were initially aligned together with the imod software package or ucsf tomography. the defocus near the tilt-axis area of each tilt micrograph was examined by fitting contrast transfer function (ctf) parameters with its power spectrum using ctffind3 in the frealign […]

DOI: 10.1038/nsmb.2953

[…] a polara electron microscope (fei, inc.) running at 300kv. a post-column energy filter (gif, gatan, inc.) was used and the slit width was set at 25 ev. automatic data collection was carried out by ucsf tomography software . single-axis tilt series were collected at a nominal magnification of 41,000. images of dimension 2032x2032 were recorded on a ccd camera (ultracam, gatan, inc.). the final […]
