competen cell - (Oct/24/2006 )
hello every one
i prepare competen cell with TSS buffer and i need to know if my competen cell got contamination or not is there any way to know a bout it
streak some on a plate and check for morphology; do a gram stain, etc.
in addition i would do plates with antibiotic. 1 for amp, 1 for tetracyclin, 1 for kana for zeo etc...
if you don't mind how can do gram stain
