The highly versatile TransforMax™ EC100™ E. coli competent cells are ideal for most cloning applications. The cells provide very high transformation efficiency when tested against a wide range of supercoiled DNAs as well as DNA directly from a ligation reaction (Table 1).
Table 1. Comparison of the transformation efficiencies of TransforMax™ EC100™ E. coli with a variety of DNAs. Transformations were performed using 50 µl of competent cells and either supercoiled DNAs of the indicated sizes or a 1-µl aliquot from a standard 10-µl ligation reaction. Results shown are in cfu/µg of DNA and are the average transformation efficiencies obtained from several trials.
