Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Photocomposite of bacteria on human skin. Types of bacteria seen in this photocomposite are: Rod-shaped bacteria, Escherichia coli; Propionibacterium acnes; Corynebacterium diptheriae. Coccoid bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus; Staphylococcus epidermidis; Enterococcus faecium; Micrococcus luteus. The human skin has been considered to harbour a complex microbial ecosystem. Recently it has been shown that over 120 different types of bacteria can occur in the microbiota of the human skin. Magnification: bacteria x370; skin x6 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
