Apheon Bioscience’s DH5-alpha Chemical Competent cells are optimized for high efficiency transformations. Cells are ideal for routine cloning (For library construction we recommend Aphe10B Electrocompetent cells . The DH5-alpha genotype is similar to other commonly used 5-alpha competent cells offering blue/white selection on agar plates containing X-gal. They also provide high yield and high quality plasmid DNA preparations for subsequent experiments.
