Capillary microarray and microfabricated sequencers are still under development and promise a significant size reduction of automated sequencers providing high throughput and base calling accuracy.[18,19] A 96-channel radial capillary array was demonstrated in Ref. . The microchannel plate provides high resolution due to the use of tapered turns that provide an effective separation length of 15.9 cm on a compact 150-mm-diameter wafer. An average read length of 430 bases was obtained on this device. In general, miniaturization typically leads to a reduction of separation distance causing poor resolution, insufficient read length, low base calling accuracy, all of which currently limit the application of these devices.

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.
