According to an ancient Chinese text, this occurred some 4,000 years ago in the Chow-Foo dynasty and more than 3,500 years before the “father of modern microscopy” was born, the Chinese viewed magnified specimens through a lens at the end of a tube, which tube was filled with varying levels of water according to the degree of magnification they wished to achieve.
After a long journey, microscope had changed become one of the most informant tool when Anton van Leeuwenhoek, who used a microscope with one lens to observe insects and other specimen. Leeuwenhoek was the first to observe bacteria.
Perhaps his most famous experiment came in 1674 when he viewed some lake water:
“I now saw very plainly that these were little eels, or worms, lying all huddled up together and wriggling just as if you saw, with the naked eye, a whole tubful of very little eels and water, with the eels squirming among one another; and the whole water seemed to be alive with these multifarious animalcules. This was for me, among all the marvels that I have discovered in nature, the most marvelous of all; and I must say, for my part, that no more pleasant sight has every yet come before my eyes that these many thousand of living creatures seen all alive in a little drop of water, moving among one another, each several creature having its own proper motion.”
microscope eventually alter human perception of the microscopic world. This tool is used in many areas of science and become instrument that is always exist in every laboratory. Curiosity about the micro world is not only owned by scientists, but children also have the same desire at this moment.
Back in the old days, microscopes to keep the kids entertained were a messy business. Collecting the samples to view on the various slides was a challenge, as was keeping all the bits in one place. Not forgetting, of course, the need to squint through the viewing lens to find out what was going on.
