I arrested HeLa cells with nocodazole (0.8µg/mL) for 15 hrs and most of my 
cells were in a condensed chromatine stage.  Is it possible to wash nocodazole 
away and let the mitosis process go on (to get anafase cells) or do I have to 
use a lower concentration of nocodazole and/or longer incubation?
Any suggestions are welcome.

Kind regards,
