Free cells, including the bacteria, protozoa and spermatozoa were discovered by Anton Von Leuwenhoek. Robert Brown discovered nucleus.

Purkinje coined the term protoplasm to describe the contents of cells (in animal embryos). The term was applied to the cellular contents in plant embryos by Von Mohl. Huxley described protoplasm as the material basis of life. The terms cytoplasm and nucleoplasm were introduced by Strasburger.
