EPICENTRE Launches TransforMax™ EC100™ Competent E. Coli Cells
Product News Jul 03, 2007
EPICENTRE’s has introduced TransforMax™ EC100™ Electrocompetent E. coli and TransforMax™ EC100™ Chemically Competent E. coli competent cells for most cloning applications.
According to Company, the benefits include high transformation efficiencies: >1 x 1010 cfu/µg and >1 x 108 cfu/µg of pUC19 with the electrocompetent and chemically competent cells, respectively; the ability to accept large DNAs for construction of large-insert genomic libraries, and the genotype lac Z?M15 for blue/white screening of recombinants.
The cells are also genotypically endonuclease minus (endA1) and recombination minus (recA1) to ensure high yields of DNA and the greater stability of large cloned inserts.
