Protocol for Competent Cells

  • Grow 250 ml flask, one colony, 50 ml LB at 37 deg for 4 hours (OD must be 0.3-0.4) in shaker (check at ~7pm) - OD was 0.83
  • Spin down 20 mls in 2 50 ml epis at 4 degrees in centrifuge
    • 3200 RCF (4000 RPM) 10 minutes 4 degrees
    • pour of supernatant, add 40 mls 4 deg filtered water each (maybe add 5 first, vortex, add 35 more)
      • make sure pellet is dissolved
    • repeat above 2x
  • resuspend pellets in 10% glycerol (5 mls each)
  • spin, remove glycerol supernatant
  • resuspend in 0.5 ml 10% glycerol each, combine tubes
  • make 20x 50 ul aliquots, put in -80 freezer

Agarose Chip Prep

  • Put silicon chips in acetone (under fume hood) in glass flask for 5 minutes, heated slightly
  • Made 3ml 5% agarose, heat to 80 deg
  • Using stationary phase GFP cells, dilute a few colonies in DI water to OD 0.05.
