Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph (freeze fracture technique) of a bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium. This species of Pseudomonas is common in the human intestine, but can cause serious wound, skin and urinary tract infections. It can also multiply in the warm, moist conditions prevailing inside baby incubators or ventilating machines and so be inhaled in large numbers. Such infections of the respiratory tract are usually harmless, but sometimes result in a necrotizing and dangerous pneumonia. P. aeruginosa can cause skin infections among users of swimming pools. Mag: x52,500 at 10x8, x15,000 at 6x7cm size.
