The appeal of microarray technology is the possibility of large-scale parallel determination of a variety of variables simultaneously. Hence, microarray technologies attract the interest of both the scientific and business worlds alike. High-throughput screening has been the major focus of the utilization of microarray technologies in recent years, and has provided the strong driving force for developments in this field. DNA chip and biochip technologies have been developed as a consequence of worldwide activity in genome research. This review focuses on microarray-based analysis and emphasizes some of its principal constraints, especially detection limits.
