Patch-clamp electrophysiology is an important technique utilized for studying ion channels, integral membrane proteins, which allow ion current flow across the cell membrane. Ion channels are important pharmacological targets, as they are involved in almost all physiological processes and their malfunction can cause many diseases.

The automated patch clam technique was developed in the late 1990s and early 2000s. This technique involves the replacing of patch-clamp pipette with a planar substrate, which makes the experiments easier to perform. The automated patch clamp system provides increased throughput and enhanced simplicity, which has made ion-channel drug discovery process easier.

The global automated patch clamp system market is estimated to be valued at US$ 412.01 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period (2020-2027).
