For detection of a multiplicity of targets (more than six), liquid- and solid-phase microarrays may best suit this requirement. Examples of this technology would be XTAG (Luminex, Austin, TX) or BeadExpress (Illumina, San Diego, CA). Solid arrays which have been in use for several years in research laboratories as represented by Nanosphere, Inc. (Northbrook, IL) are an alternative. Other solid array systems such as GeneChip (Affymetrix, Santa Clara, CA) and BioFilmChip (­Autogenomics, Vista, CA) are other alternatives.
