OverviewThe HT96™ NovaBlue Competent Cells are designed for high-throughput transformation. The cells are predispensed in 20-µl volumes in a sturdy 96-well polypropylene plate, which is compatible with a variety of thermal cyclers and water baths. Wells are individually sealed and have raised rims to prevent cross-contamination. Seals can be easily pierced with standard pipet tips or removed for access. Strips of caps are also provided for reliable sealing during manipulation and storage. Groups of 24 wells can be easily split from the plate for processing smaller numbers of samples.

HT96 NovaBlue Competent Cells
NovaBlue is a K-12 strain ideally suited as an initial cloning host because it has high transformation efficiency, blue/white screening capability (with appropriate plasmids), and mutations in recA and endA, which result in high yields of high-quality plasmid DNA.
