Caption: False colour transmission electron micrograph of a field of whooping cough bacteria, Bordetella pertussis. A few of the bacteria are undergoing cell division & appeared pinched in at the waist as a prelude to splitting into two cells. The whooping cough bacteria parasitise only humans. They cause a respiratory tract infection characterised by fits of coughing that end in loud inspiratory whoops. The infection usually occurs in childhood although adults are sometimes affected. It is potentially fatal in infancy. Magnification: X 3,430 at 35mm size. Original is bw print b220/209.
