^Actual yield will vary with the nature of the plasmid, bacterial hosts, and other factors. Please contact MB@GENEWIZ.com to discuss known low-copy, unstable, or toxic constructs.

Choice of Starting Material



Provide at least 100 ng DNA in 5μL
DNA transformation is an add-on service*


Glycerol Stock

Provide 200 μL frozen stock


Bacterial Colony

Provide fresh, well-isolated colonies (<3 days old)

*For DNA samples, GENEWIZ provides multiple host strains to choose from for transformation. For custom strains, please provide the starting material as bacterial colony or clonal glycerol stock, or select “Other” for host strain when placing your order and include the competent cells with your DNA submission.


*Samples must arrive at the GENEWIZ New Jersey laboratory before 10:00 am EST to qualify for Same Day service. Note that
direct-sequencing templates are not available for our Same Day service.
