Patch clamping was first introduced into biophysical studies by Neher and Sakmann  in 1976 and was soon expanded to many other fields such as biology and medicine. The technique not only allowed the detection of single-channel currents in biological membranes for the first time but also enabled higher current resolution, direct membrane patch potential control, and physical isolation of membrane patches . The development of the patch clamp method was honoured with a Nobel Prize in 1991.
