Single Solution Agrobacterium Transformation Kit
Qbiogene has introduced a new kit that enables researchers studying plant genomics and proteomics to transform DNA into Agrobacterium with a minimum of hands-on time. The Agrobacterium Transformation Kit contains a single transformation solution with which A.rhizogenes or A.tumefaciens can be transformed with plasmid DNA using either a freeze/thaw or electroporation method. The kit includes optimized Agrobacterium medium and agar as well as Roll & Grow® Plating Beads for the easy spreading of transformed cells.
The reagents in the Agrobacterium Transformation Kit are used to transform DNA into the Agrobacterium in three basic steps. Agrobacteria are first grown in the liquid medium, then transformed using either the freeze/thaw or electroporation method. Transformed cells are then plated onto selective agar plates and allowed to grow for 2 to 3 days into healthy colonies. Once media preparation is complete, this easy transformation procedure is estimated to take less than 45 minutes with minimal hands-on time.
As with all Qbiogene products, the Agrobacterium Transformation Kit is competitively priced, immediately available, and backed by comprehensive technical support. For more information, visit their website at www.qbiogene.com, E-mail
