FAQ: How does the transformation efficiency of the 96-well plate format (NEB #C2987P) compare to the other formats?

The transformation efficiency (TE) for the 96-well plate format NEB 5-alpha Competent E.coli (NEB #C2987P) is as high as the two other formats, NEB #C2987H and NEB #C2987I. At 1–3 x 109 cfu/μg pUC19 DNA, transformation efficiencies are 10 times higher than the TE of any other commercially available 96-well plate format competent cells.
