I also had trouble with Stratagene's Lac Switch system; however, I
have heard from others that it can work well.  In the protocols
for the Lac Switch system, there is a list of references.  They

1. Miller, JH and Reznikoff, WS (1980) The Operon. Cold Spring Harbor
Laboratory, New York.
2. Fieck, A et al, (1992) Nucleic Acids Res. 20: 1785-1791.
3. Wyborski, DL and Short, JM (1991) Nucleic Acids Res. 19: 4647-4653.
4. DuCoeur, LC et al (1992) Strategies 5: 70-72 (It's put out by Stratagene)

Hope this helps.
