Fisher sells CHCl3-resistant microtiter plates. You can do your lysis in
these plates then transfer to standard plates for subsequent use. Because
they are CHCl3-resistant, they also stand up well to washing and autoclaving
so they can be reused. So I guess your lysis method depends on what you're
trying to get out of the cell. I've used this strategy for b-gal assays.
