whether or not dalekantium (the material their shells are made of) is dense enough to block a Borg nanoprobe injection tubule.
Actually seeing as the Daleks have something similar to nanoprobes and they also have a device that can block them I don't see why it couldn't be adapted to block Borg nanoprobes, so they wouldn't be reliant on just their casings.
I don't think we know enough about how Dalek nanogenes work in comparison to how Borg nanoprobes work to presume that the same technology that neutralizes the former could neutralize the latter. But you're correct in noting that this would be another relevant factor in determining Dalek susceptibility to assimilation.
