 Actually, 2D electrophoresis is the most commonly used approach for
doing high throughput proteomics on different tissues/cell cultures. 
There are standardized techniques for doing it and extensive databases
for tentatively identifying proteins based on their position in the gel
and for identifying them bases on mass spec of the spots excised from
the gel.

A good starting point would be to look at the ABRF web site at:


They have an ongoing electronic discussion group and pointers to lots of
handy resources.
