Overview - Chemically Competent Cells

E. Coli transformation remains one of the most common laboratory techniques and is important for protein production, cloning, and many other molecular biology workflows. Choosing the correct chemically competent cells is crucial for successful transformations since they are what take up the DNA. Zymo Research offers a variety of chemically competent cells designed to accelerate research and get to results faster. The chemically competent cells drastically reduce the time required for bacterial transformation by removing heatshock. These chemically competent cells also have extremely high transformation efficiencies ( > 108 transformants per µg pUC19 DNA). The chemically competent cells come pre-made in a variety of strains to suit any molecular assay.
