Dear DK,

You are correct. we do not have any issue with IBs and its recovery. only
when mixing  the cell paste with lysis buffer to create a homogenous
suspension for homogenisation we do not get uniform mass. moreover i wanted
to know the reason for the slimy cell paste as we have taken about 7 trial
batches with this particular clone. The first 4 batches were fine and we
used to get compact cell mass. But recent batches show this slime or cell
lysis. so was unable to understand the reason for this sudden change when
all parameters of fermentation is unchanged.

But thanks for everybody's suggestion.
