You can see a interpretation of a Methylobacterium sp colony in 3D. The colony has an high profile because the medium in Petri dish has suffered dehydration.
Tools used for the picture is ImageJ "Extended Depth of Field"

The pink silhouette of the fly was made by using the bacterium Escherichia coli (ATCC® 25922™), a bacterium that inhabits in a friendly manner as a part of the bowel flora within the human and animals large intestine. This bacterium can cause disease for example, on immunocompromised hosts, when... Read More
Superheroes can be found in the most unlikely places… even in the bacterial world! The bacteria that you see on this plate are Streptomycetes. Streptomycetes normally live in the soil, together with a lot of other species, with whom they compete for nutrients. When a Streptomycete spore settles ... Read More
The Sabouraud Dextrose Agar depicts a lighthouse and light composed of Trichosporon species and Exophiala species. Trichosporon is a white, dry, wrinkled, yeast-like organism that has properties of mold and yeast. It is frequently isolated from the respiratory tract in Cystic Fibrosis patients... Read More
Using colorful contaminations of yellow Nesterenkonia, orange Deinococcus and Sphingomonas along with white Bacillus spots, the artist Maria Penil painted these two jellyfish frolicking on an agar plate at 30 degrees for two days, followed by several days at room temperature for rest and peace. ...

In short, using Immunohistochemistry is invaluable when detecting antigens that can cause infectious diseases and helping to diagnose and get rid of cancer. Contact Creative Bioarray for your IHC needs today.
You can see a colony of fungi or bacteria growing on agar in a Petri dish and imagine a tropical island, maybe in the Caribbean sea, with its vegetation and a big orange Sun in the sky... Sometimes in the lab trash we can find a lot of beauty Read More
BBL’s CHROMagar Orientation agar is the canvas for this piece of agar art. Chromogens in the agar release a colored compound when hydrolyzed by specific enzymes allowing certain bacteria to appear different colors on it. The white color is Acinetobacter baumanii, an opportunistic bacterium that... Read More
BBL’s CHROMagar Staph Aureus agar is the canvas for this piece of agar art. Chromogens in the agar release a colored compound when hydrolyzed by specific enzymes allowing certain bacteria to appear different colors on it. The mauve rose bud is Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium frequently found... Read More
Red drum fish made from the following bacteria: Chromobacterium violaceum, Dermacoccus nishinomiyaensis, Serratia marcescens, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Corynebacterium xerosis, and Aeromonas hydrophila on tryptic soy agar. Read More
The artist Maria Penil was inspired by biological shapes and underwater plants for this work. Her care and passion can be seen, as she took a long time to paint with yellow Nesterenkonia, orange Deinococcus and Sphingomonas for this work. This resulted in some contamination, which Maria comment... Read More
The salmon-colored tick displayed on this hektoen enteric agar was created by the sugar fermentation reaction of Klebsiella pneumoniae. On this medium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa grows small and dark green and was used to display the words “Lyme” and “Borrelia” along with the associated spirochete ... Read More
Neurons and biological shapes is a common theme in the works of the artist Maria Penil. Here she painted with yellow Nesterenkonia, orange Deinococcus and Sphingomonas isolated for their attractive colors as contaminants in the Berkmen lab. After growing the plates for 2 days at 30C, the artist ... Read More
Streptomyces coelicolor is a filamentous, soil bacterium that is part of a large genus of bacteria that produces a variety of biologically active compounds. In addition, S. coelicolor is a model for prokaryotic development. Streptomyces colonies go through a series of developmental changes that ... Read More
E. coli K-12, a non-pathogen for most part, is a sorbitol fermenter and appears as pink to red colored colonies whereas E. coli O157:H7 colonies are not colored, on the differential BBL™ MacConkey II agar with sorbitol media plates. These two strains were used to paint the abstract sun, whose wa... Read More
BBL’s CHROMagar Staph Aureus agar is the canvas for this piece of agar art. Chromogens in the agar release a colored compound when hydrolyzed by specific enzymes allowing certain bacteria to appear different colors on it. The mauve part of the butterfly is Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium fre... Read More
A joint submission by two gator alumni. As coworkers and infection control practitioners we felt it would be a refreshing change of pace to cast a positive light upon bacteria that are usually known for the havoc they wreak. And what better excuse than the ASM Agar Art contest? #AgarArt2015 #A... Read More
Using E.coli B strains from NEB (C2566) expressing various chromogenic proteins, the artist Maria Penil was inspired by sand dollars she has seen at her walks off the coast of New England. She grows her painting for two days at 30C then seals her work in epoxy, which surprisingly doesnt kill al... Read More
