Rudolph Virchow suggested that all cells come from pre-existing cells. His aphorism'omnis cellula e cellula' meaning every cell from a pre-existing cell became the foundations of division, even if the process was not fully understood then.

He also stated that not all plants are made up of cells,which eventually lead to the creation of the cell theory.
