The microscope which is invented and developed by much different scientist overtime is one of the most important tools a scientist especially in the biology and chemistry study can use. It made an impact in how we view life and learn more about the nature of diseases that had plague mankind for years. The microscope is mainly a tool biologist use but it has many uses for those studying chemistry.
Life before the microscope may not seem as different as life with the microscope. But if you look at the bigger picture the microscope made an impact to the way humanity lives like other technology such as the printing press, and guns. The microscope at first was only use for scientist curiosity of what is beyond the sight of the human naked eye. But eventually scientists discover cells, bacteria, and molecules. Those discoveries made an impact on science and how we view science today. So without the microscope modern science would end up being completely different. Also in labs in the hospitals doctors use blood samples and urine to look through the microscope and help treat and sometimes even cure diseases. Even in law enforcement labs forensic scientist and other people working in the field use the microscope to examine things to help bring justice in the world. Imagine if humanity had modern day microscopes back during the tragic bubonic plague imagine how many lives could be saved or at least have more of a solution against the deadly disease then they had back then. Life may not have change the instant the microscope was invented but it helped bring us to where we are at now.
The microscope is made up of many parts. The ocular lenses which you use to look through, body tube which is the tube you look through using the ocular lenses. The arms where you use to move the microscope and there is the base where which holds up the actually microscope. There is also a stage where you put your sample you want to examine on. Overall the microscope is mainly made out of plastic and glass. The main natural resource used to make the plastic of the microscope is petroleum. Most modern day microscopes used in labs outside of the school uses electricity and use light to help function the microscope. A scientist in Canada actually used an iPhone to see through a woman’s intestine.
There was technology before the invention of the microscope in 1590, like the spectacles or the glasses, that uses lenses. There was the reading stone that helped people read reading material in the 2nd century. There are also the spectacles also known as glasses that are still used today. The first spectacle was invented by an Italian named Salvino D'Armate. The spectacle was a major invention that helped people sees well. The first actual microscope was invented by...
