● Different groups of antibodies may be attached to a solid matrix, allowing the microarray to be performed on solutions of proteins, such as cell lysates, urine, plasma or cerebrospinal fluid
● This assay can be performed with many different variations
One common method uses the standard enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) protocol:
(1) a specific protein I solution is bound by a solid matrix-attached antibody
(3) binding of a second detection antibody which binds the specific protein
(5) addition of a second antibody which has an attached reporter (a fluorophore or horse radish peroxidase [HRP] commonly)
(7) specific protein binding is detected via the addition of a HRP substrate or exposure to light wavelengths which cause the fluorophore to emit
