Default Dropped vial of yeast... Bad?

Yesterday I accidentally dropped a vial of yeast from the door of the fridge to the floor. It did not break however the yeast and the liquid did become mixed up. Is it still ok to be used? I have it warming up to room temp now for a brew later.

Yes, you need to mix it up anyway in order to get everything out of the vial.

Make sure to shake it up good to mix the yeast in with the liquid before you pitch it. It is the best way to get all of the yeast out of the tube.

Ok. I put it back in the fridge when it happened because I was not ready to use it then. Still ok?
