(Max-Planck-Gesellschaft) After an infection with Helicobacter pylori, gene activity in the gastric cells resembles the activity of cancer cells. Read More
Humans aren't the only ones who like to cruise along the waterways, so do viruses. For the first time, a map of fecal viruses traveling our global waterways has been created using modeling methods to aid in assessing water quality worldwide. Read More
An infectious diseases expert has warned Australia is at greater risk from the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus than it was from Ebola, but Australian authorities insist the nation is prepared for any cases of the deadly disease. Read More
Create an Ocean View on your XLD Agar plates!!
E.coli, the Lactose fermentor produce sunshine yellow, Salmonella spp, metabolise thiosulfate to produce hydrogen sulfide, which leads to the formation of colonies with black centers, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the non lactose fermentor, produce pink ... Read More
Perfect for the last slide of a research presentation.
4 bacteria was used : Escherichia coli (Thank - White), Micrococcus luteus (for - yellow), Dickeya dadantii (your - white), Serratia marcescens (you, attention - red). Read More
Cupit heart on LB agar with Serratia marcescens. S. marcescens naturally produces a red pigment: prodigiosin. Read More
When treated with the prescription drugs Zoloft and Vascor, mice infected with Ebola survived.
The new study was small and preliminary, but if the drugs prove effective in humans—a finding still years away—it could mean new treatments for the deadly disease. Read More
A new, rapid method is helping detect how bacteria sense and respond to changes in their environment. Read More
Weaker organisms can prevail against stronger ones—if they’re superior in number, experiments show. This acts as a driving mechanism in the maintenance of genetic diversity. Read More
CAMP test - A presumptive identification of group B beta-hemolytic streptococci.
This a positive CAMP test indicated by the formation of an arrowhead where the Strep group B meets the Staphylococcus aureus (white middle streak).
E. coli was grown on MacConkey Agar (MAC) at 37 degrees for 24 hour. MAC is a Selective and Differential media used to inhibit G+ growth and some G- bacteria as well as identify and isolate lactose fermenting G- enteric bacteria mainly Enterobacteriaceae. Strong lactose fermentation produces pi... Read More
This tree is made up of Streptococus pneumoniae (as the leaves)and Candida albicans (as the trunk),cultured on a chocolate agar incubated 24hours under 5% CO2 condition.
S.pneumoniae is a alpha hemolytic organism producing green colour colonies while C.albicans produce 'feet'around the margin o... Read More
E. coli growth on EMB Agar. EMB Agar slightly inhibits gram-positive bacteria due to the combination of dyes and is a selective and differential medium for coliforms. Bacteria that ferments lactose will exhibit a green metallic sheen. This image represents E. coli as a quality control microorga... Read More
This environmental bacterial was taking from an art institution in Medellín (Casa Tres Patios) by using basic agar. The salmon-orange bacteria need two-three days to grow and in this process it is increasing its own color. Read More
In Turkey every month we control pools of Hotels by the Ministry of Health. And here we caught Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It was oxidase positive that's why we can separate from Enterobactericeace family. Well fluorescence under uv illumination. Read More
These are actinobacteria isolated from natural ponds in Cuatro Cienegas, Coahuila México.
In the picture they are growing on ISP2 media and showing different colony morphologies. Read More
Researchers at Queen's University Belfast have developed a cutting-edge new medical therapy that could protect UK hospital patients against a lethal superbug. Read More
Elite controllers (EC) are a small group of HIV-infected individuals who are able to suppress the virus in the absence of antiretroviral therapy. EC demonstrate that the human immune system, in principle, is capable of rendering HIV harmless. A study published on June 11th in PLOS Pathogens show... Read More
A good mathematical model could give more values to a microbiology experiment and infection investigation. The image is an example of initial deterministic mathematical model of risk analysis for food borne pathogen. It depicts the steps of constructing mathematical model for prediction of risk ...
