For simple, high efficiency transformations without heat shock and lengthy incubations.


  • Simple 20 Second Transformation: No heat shock! Just add DNA and spread on plate.
  • High Transformation Efficiencies: Achieve 108 - 109 per µg of plasmid DNA.
  • Versatile: Excellent for general cloning, blue-white screening, and plasmid isolation.


The Mix & Go! E. coli strains are premade, chemically competent cells for simple and highly efficient DNA transformation. Mix & Go! E. coli cells are made chemically competent by a method that completely eliminates the need for heat shocking and related procedures. For transformation, simply mix DNA with cells and then spread onto solid medium − Mix & Go! The premade Mix & Go! competent cells are highly efficient (> 108 transformants/µg pUC19) and can be used for cloning, sub-cloning, PCR fragment cloning, library construction, etc.
