Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Meningococcal swab. Nurse rubbing a swab from a patient's moth onto an agar plate. The plate will be incubated to allow any bacteria present to grow. This test will show if the patient is a carrier of Neisseria meningitidis bacteria. N. meningitidis can cause meningococcal meningitis (swelling of the membranes surrounding the brain) and meningococcaemia (blood poisoning), both of which can be fatal.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
