Caption: Anton van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), Dutch microbiologist, looking through a magnifying glass to represent his discoveries in microbiology. Leeuwenhoek built his own microscopes, grinding the lenses himself, according to a single lens design that could magnify up to nearly 200 times. He was able to study the natural world in greater detail than was previously possible. He observed and described protozoa, bacteria, blood cells, and sperm. He also studied insect life cycles.
