Hi,
I'm running western blots for some proteins in pancreatic cyst fluid.
I'm not very familiar with cyst fluid at this point. Is there any way to
test for blood contamination in my samples? I'm concerned about blood
proteins affecting my results.
Thanks.

test for presence of haemoglobin will be the easiest. The other option is to take a small aliquot and look for red blood cells under a microscope.
