This SEM depicts a couple of clusters of aerobic Gram-negative, non-motile Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria as seen under a magnification of 12,739x.
Members of the genus Acinetobacter are nonmotile rods, 1-1.5µm in diameter, and 1.5-2.5µm in length, becoming spherical in shape while in their... Read More

Marine bioluminescent Photobacterium kishitanii
The genus Photobacterium was first coined by Martin Beijerinck, in 1889, and originally referred to all bacteria capable of light production. Species belonging to Photobacterium are gram negative, rod shaped, chemoorganotrophic, facultative aerob... Read More
