Microarray Sequencers

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. [20]. 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.

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.
