Caption

Streptococcus pneumoniae, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). S. pneumoniae are oval, Gram-positive bacteria, that are often found in pairs or chains, as here. They are part of the normal bacterial flora, and as such, are carried by many without causing infection. However, in immune compromised individuals they can infect the upper respiratory tract, causing pneumonia. They may also infect other parts of the body, causing bacterial blood poisoning (bacteraemia) and meningitis. Magnification x 22,000 when printed 10cm wide.
