OminMAX and DH10B competent cells have eliminated mcrA, mcrBC, mrr, and hsdRMS restriction systems to allow construction of more representative genomic libraries.

Which competent cell strain is right for you?

  gDNA & plasmid rescue Inverted & direct repeats & retroviral uses High efficiency Highest efficiency; for large inserts Highest chemically competent efficiency
