Can the QuantiTect Primer Assays be used for detection of genomic DNA?

The QuantiTect Primer Assays are RNA specific. The primers cross exon-exon boundaries, so in most cases they will not work for genomic DNA detection. In case the transcript contains only one exon or there are pseudogenes present, genomic DNA will be amplified too.
