MAX Efficiency DH5αF´IQ Chemically Competent Cells are high-efficiency chemically competent cells available for M13 cloning, cloning into plasmids with an f1-like origin of replication (phagemids), or cloning into any vector that uses expression from the lac promoter.
MAX Efficiency DH5αF´IQ cells offer the following features:

• >3 x 108 transformants/µg efficiency
• Stable F´ episome eliminates need for growth on minimal media
• ZΔM15 for blue/white screening of colonies or plaques

Three milliliters of lawn cells and a vial of monomer M13mp18 RF DNA are supplied as a control.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
