By accident, I have added ammonium perchlorate into my BCA assay instead of NaVO4, will the perchlorate have a damaging effect?

Perchlorate is a powerful oxidiser, and the BCA assay relies on reduction of Cu2+ ions, so the perchlorate will prevent this from happening probably. Best to throw it out and start again.
