Cell frozen - (Dec/10/2006 )

I'd like to freeze cells and medium together before adding lysis buffer and scraping cell. But I wonder if I can still get intact cells after that? Would cells break and proteins leak to medium?
Many thanks!


No, your cells will break and their content will leak out. People usually remove the old medium and wash 1-3 times with PBS, then lyse the cells.
