We have searched in the literature and in the vignettes and user guides of BioConductor but it seems that almost every experiment with spotted arrays is done with two colors. No documentation exists for single channel spotted microarrays, except for the article by 't Hoen et al., 2004, Nucleic Acids Research.

from the data analysis point of view, it does not make a substantial
difference whether the DNA on the array probes was brought there by a
spotter or synthesized in situ.
There is an enormous amount of documentation on the analysis of
one-colour arrays, and chapter 7.2 of the limma vignette might be a good
More specifically, you could consider the justvsn function from the vsn
package or the normalizeQuantiles function from the limma package for
normalisation; and the arrayQualityMetrics package for quality-related
