Once the genetic basis of HPAs had been resolved, a number of techniques for HPA typing were developed. Initially, conventional PCR techniques with elaborate post-PCR steps were introduced. Now, techniques with fluorescent probes have been developed which do not require extra post-PCR steps. These one-tube assays make HPA typing rapid and reliable and less prone to contamination. This makes high-throughput screening an achievable goal. Other techniques, such as minisequenc-ing combined with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF)[12] or pyrosequencing (http://www.pyrosequencing. com), might become more and more important for large-scale HPA genotyping in the future.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
