Parallel detection of antibodies with different specificity has many potential applications in epidemiological
research, vaccine development and in the diagnosis of allergies, autoimmune and infectious diseases. Although
ELISA-based tests are suitable for this purpose, available assays can be time consuming and require large
quantities of both sample and reagents thus limiting their application for mass screening.
