This article reviews post-2000 trends in the development of two-dimensional protein microarrays and nanoarrays. Progress in array manufacture, assay design and applications are considered, with an emphasis on issues surrounding the implementation of arrays in clinical diagnostics. These include the effect of factors in the pre-analytical phase (quality of the reagents, sample integrity, etc.), and those in the analytical phase that contribute to inaccuracy and imprecision of an array-based assay. Important requirements for the quality control and quality assurance of protein microarray assays as they move from the research environment into routine clinical application are also discussed.
