Microarray technology has become a crucial tool for large-scale and high-throughput biology. It allows fast, easy and parallel detection of thousands of addressable elements in a single experiment. In the past few years, protein microarray technology has shown its great potential in basic research, diagnostics and drug discovery. It has been applied to analyse antibody-antigen, protein-protein, protein-nucleic-acid, protein-lipid and protein-small-molecule interactions, as well as enzyme-substrate interactions. Recent progress in the field of protein chips includes surface chemistry, capture molecule attachment, protein labeling and detection methods, high-throughput protein/antibody production, and applications to analyse entire proteomes.
