Protein arrays (see Protein microarrays as an emerging tool for proteomics and Protein arrays) enable investigators to characterize multiple proteins in parallel while expending minimal amounts of precious biological samples. The individual features of arrays can be either arranged in a two-dimensional grid on a planar surface, or they can be constructed from optically encoded particles suspended in a solution. A variety of substrates, chemistries, and arraying methods have been described. The choice among these methods should be made according to the nature of the application and the types and numbers of proteins that need to be arrayed.
