Caption: Staphylococcus aureus. Light micrograph of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (blue) in human synovial (joint lubricating) fluid. These gram- positive bacteria cause skin infections and often grow in grape-like clusters of small spheres. S. aureus is extremely common in humans, living harmlessly on the skin and inside the nose, throat and large intestine. However, if they multiply in blocked pores in the skin, they can cause pus to build up, forming an acne spot or boil. Inside the body these bacteria may also cause abscesses and other suppurative infections. Infections are treated with antibiotics if they become serious. Phase contrast. Magnification: x1000 at 35mm size.
