Caption: Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a dividing Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria. This Gram-positive coccus (spherical) bacterium is enclosed in a cell wall. The membrane developing along its centre marks the line of division. S. epidermidis is usually non-pathogenic and is found on human skin and on many mucous surfaces. It is associated with acne and minor skin lesions, and it colonises plastic, resulting in bacteraemia around catheters and surgical implants like heart valves. These infections often do not respond to antibiotics, so the implants must be removed. Magnification: x200,000 at 8x10 inch size.
