Caption: SEM depicting large numbers of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which were fond on the luminal surface of an indwelling catheter. Of importance is the sticky-looking substance woven between the round cocci bacteria, which was composed of polysaccharides, and is known as biofilm. This biofilm has been found to protect the bacteria that secrete the substance from attacks by antimicrobial agents such as antibiotics. Magnified 2363x. Staphylococcus aureus, also known as golden staph and Oro staphira, is a facultative anaerobic Gram-positive coccal bacterium. Staph bacteria are one of the most common causes of skin infections in the United States.
