Dear Researchmates

I isolated plasmid from zymogen plasmid isolation kit. After pellet down
the bacterial cells, I added 7x lysis buffer(kit reagent) and by mistake I
resuspend the pellet with pipette( suppose I should not resuspend with
pipette). But when I measure plasmid concentration it was 500 ng/mico
liter. I didnt check the plasmid by running agarose gel. One of my labmate
told chormosomal DNA also could have come when I resuspend with pipette.
When I did bacterial transformation with this plasmid I got few colonies.
Could any please tell, did I do any mistake. Shall I do further steps.
