Caption: Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacter- ia. These gram-negative rod-shaped cells (bacilli) divide lengthways to form pairs, as seen here. This common species is resistant to many antibiot- ics and flourishes in diverse habitats, including the human gut, eye drops, skin ointments and even weak disinfectant solution. Most infections caused by P. aeruginosa affect the urinary tract or skin, where the species can take over after the cause of a primary infection has been removed. It can also multiply inside baby incubators, sometimes causing a dangerous form of pneumonia if inhaled in large numbers. Magnification unknown.
