Microbial diagnostic microarrays contain hundreds to thousands of nucleic acid probes, each probe being specific for a given microorganism or for a defined group of them. They enable the fast detection and identification of microorganisms in a highly parallel manner. There is a tremendous potential for diagnostic microarrays in microbiology.
We have developed a suite of techniques for microbial diagnostic microarrays; created and validated a microarray for the detection, identification and community structure analysis of methane oxidising bacteria; and applied this microarray in a full-scale project, demonstrating its application potential. Besides the realised potential of the technology, its future promises and current technological limitations will be discussed
