The similarity of absorbance spectra between DNA and RNA makes typical UV-Vis analysis less effective at distinguishing the two nucleic acids. It results in a greater risk of spending time and resources on downstream measurements only to find that the DNA sample was contaminated with RNA or vice versa. The researcher shoulders the responsibility of ensuring sample purity at the start for success down the line.
