Yes. Ishida A (2002, Anal. Biochem 305, 236-241) described using equal volumes of 10% TCA and E. coli cell culture. Let stand 3 min at room temp. Mix 1 vol of the cell extract with 19 vol of 25 mM Hepes, 17 mM NaOH, and adjust pH to 7.8.before assaying.
Lyse the cells in the 24 well plate, then add 50 µL cell lysate to 50 µL SuperLight Reagent (10 µL + 10 µL would work too). Alternatively, cells could be harvested with Trypsin/EDTA, resuspend cells in the same volume (200-500 µL of medium). Do the 50 µL + 50 μL assay.
