Macroscopic Cells

Question and Answer about macroscopic cells


What are macroscopic cells?


It is the cells that we can see with the naked eye (without using a microscope or any imaging tool). This is because these cells have dimensions above the resolving power of the human eye (0.1 mm or 100 µm).

Examples of macroscopic cells:

- Egg yolk

- Nitella Green Seaweed

- Orange endocarp alveoli

- human egg

Did you know?

Most cells of living things are microscopic.
