Caption: Streptococcus thermophilus. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the bacteria Strepto- coccus thermophilus. In this freeze-fracture technique the inner or outer surfaces of bacterial cells are seen. Streptococci are spherical, Gram- positive bacteria that often form chains. Here, the bacteria at left are dividing by binary fission. Streptococcus thermophilus is a thermo- phile organism capable of living at the high temperatures of 50-65 Celsius. This bacteria is used in the manufacture of yoghurt. It is added to milk together with the bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus and incubated at a high temperature to produce yoghurt. Magnification: unknown.
