XL1-Red Competent Cells by Agilent Technologies

Manufacturer Agilent Technologies  |   Model: 200129
These competent cells enable a highly efficient, rapid, and reproducible method for introducing random mutations in a cloned gene of interest. This method involves propagating the cloned gene into XL1-Red Competent Cells; an Escherichia coli strain which is deficient in three of the primary DNA repair pathways.
