3 parts to the cell theory:
1. The cell is the basic unit of life
2. All living things are made of cells
3. Cells come from pre-existing cells

The Cell Theory
Continued advances in microscopy
allowed observation of cell organelles
and structure.
Electron Microscopes
Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM):
bounces electrons off of a whole goldcoated sample to create vivid 3-D images
Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM):
bounces electrons off of a sliced sample to
create very detailed images
