Commerial Sources of Plasmids

Post by aeedaugher » Sun Jun 17, 2007 7:43 am

Does anyone know of some good vendors of plasmids, in general, and pBI121 in particular? Thanks! Ellyn Biotech Educator

I've never heard of pBI121. You mean pBR322? I imagine many suppliers carry pBR322, but I know that New England Biolabs for sure does. They carry a number of cloning vectors as do places like Qiagen, Stratagene, Clontech, Invitrogen, Novagen (EMD Bioscience), Roche Diagnostics--to name some off the cuff. Now if you're looking for educational freebies, there I don't know the suppliers. You might contact a local university and see if someone in the microbiology or molecular biology department wouldn't just give you some, so long as you don't need it in large quantities (more than a few micrograms).

It seems that pBI 121 is a shuttle vector that was produced by clontech. But they do not seem to carry it anymore. although they seem to carry qui a lot of derivatives: ... =1&alpha=b
