Well, to check if our transfection into E. coli has worked, we resuspend 
a small pellett in 15 ul ddH2O, boil them for 5 minutes at 95 Celsius, 
spin them for 5 minutes at full speed and take 10 ul supernatant for 
PCR. Works really well and should be ok for microtiter plates as well, 
you don't really need that many cells.

Good luck,
