Robustness And Limits

The relative simplicity for the competitor synthesis and the low cost of the final assay make the c-PCR approach as a first choice for quantitative studies of nucleic acids. Stability of RNA competitors, however, can be difficult to maintain. In some cases, the use of a DNA competitor in c-PCR for RNA expression studies has been proposed, but with the limits above reported in ''The Competitor Templates.'' Another important limitation is the high risk of contamination depending on the procedures used for quantification of the PCR products.

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.
