Caption: Color-enhanced scanning electron micrograph showing a wide variety of bacteria growing on the walls of a healthy urine sample container. A microscope coverslip attached through doublesided sticky tape to the walls of a container became covered with a bacterial biofilm in two weeks. The container was used to collect the urine of a healthy person at night and was rinsed with water, not washed or sterilized, and then used again the next night. No bacteria were found by a medical laboratory in fresh urine collected from that person, so the bacteria shown are a contamination. Image width: 10.7 micrometers. Magnification: 9345x if the image is printed 10 cm wide.
