  • FAQ: How long should I incubate cells on ice after DNA has been added (NEB #C2987H and NEB #C2987I)?

    Incubating DNA with NEB 5-alpha competent cells on ice for 30 minutes is recommended. Expect approximately 20% loss in transformation efficiency when incubating for 10 minutes (see Figure on the main product page).
