Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Elizabethkingia meningoseptica (formerly Flavobacterium meningosepticum), a species of gram-negative bacteria that normally inhabits soil and water which has also been found in hospital environments, where it may cause meningitis in premature infants and adults with immune deficiencies. In hospitals, the species has been isolated from sinks, disinfectants and respiratory and urinary tract equipment. Infections due to E. meningoseptica are treated with antibiotics such as erythromycin, chloramphenicol, rifampicin and cotrimoxazole. Magnification: x8800 at 35mm size, x17,600 at 6x7cm size.
