Cell Theory History

1674 Anton Van Leeuwenhoek used microscopes to view 1590-1608 many things including pond The first compound light organisms, bacteria and by microscopes were made blood cells. He made the Jensen brothers and careful sketches which Hans Lippershey of what he observed. 1759discovery allowed for the C. F.

With these mechanisms by Italian advances, he discovered a microscope builders variety of cells in allowed for the study of unicellular and many organisms at cell multicellular organisms. 1700 level.
