Hi All

I am trying to transduce mutations between E. coli stocks and have some P1 stocks which work fine on K12 strains but unfortunately my new pathogenic E. coli target appears to form lysogens much more readily than K12 and laughs off a 10^10 titre lysate. 

Does anyone out there have a nice high titre P1vir stock that they would be happy to share with a fellow microbiologist ?
