Default Can a RIN be obtained after running mRNA- instead of total RNA assays on Bioanalyzer?

We ran mRNA instead of total RNA assays, and are left with rRNA contamination values instead of RINs. The traces of the RNAs all look fine, so it seems that the data are there, and all we need is to find a way to get the RIN from them. Is there a way to (non-manually) obtain RINs after running mRNA assays? I also posted this question as a response to a related thread in this forum, but decided to create a new thread in addition, because it seems like a problem that is not unlikely to occur to people doing library preps. Thanks for any help.

No, I don't think this is possible. But if you figure out a way, please post it.

I recall reading that RIN is the value assigned mainly based on rRNA peaks. So even if you'd get RIN value for your samples it might be wrong because without rRNA peaks the algorithm might misinterpret the RNA integrity. This is how I understood it.
