This may seem like an odd question, but is there any way of figuring out the amount of contaminating DNA in my RNA samples?
I was considering using the Nanodrop spec. and measuring using the DNA setting instead of the RNA setting, but as these are RNA samples I wondered how accurate my reading would be. Can the spec. differentiate between the two types of nucleic acid well enough to give me an accurate reading?
My ultimate aim is to have a reading of DNA content in my RNA samples before and after DNase treatment, just to put my mind at ease.
Thanks in advance for any help!
