The History and Importance of Microscopes


The Dutch scientist, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, is the inventor of the very first practical microscope. He contributed greatly to the history of microscopes because he has revealed a whole new dimension for the scientists. For this reason he is also known as 'the father of microscopy'.


"Without microscope we will not make any further progress."


Before, the smallest part mankind could see was as wide as a human hair. The advent of the microscopes opened suddenly a whole new world of living things in our water, in our food and around us. Scientists were able to study the existence of the microorganisms. They were able to see the smallest parts of plants, animals and the structure of cells.


Today, the microscope is not only important in biology, but is also indispensable for the laboratory studies. Moreover, it's a commonly used tool to identify problems/diseases in hospitals and clinics all over the world.























In the past centuries the Dutch scientists concerned themselves with the development of microscopes. That tradition continued to exist in the Dutch science culture ever since.
