Antibody arrays are valuable for the parallel analysis of multiple proteins in small sample volumes. The earliest and most widely used application of antibody arrays has been to measure multiple protein abundances, using sandwich assays and label-based assays, for biomarker discovery and biological studies. Modifications to these assays have led to studies profiling specific protein post-translational modifications. Additional novel uses include profiling enzyme activities and protein cell-surface expression. Finally, array-based antibody platforms are being used to assist the development and characterization of antibodies. Continued progress in the technology will surely lead to extensions of these applications and the development of new ways of using the methods.
