Caption

Bifidobacterium bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a cluster of Bifidobacterium sp. bacteria. Bifidobacteria are Gram-positive anaerobic bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract, vagina and mouth. They have a unique hexose (sugar) metabolism, called the bifid shunt, which can be used as a diagnostic test for bifidobacteria because it is not found in other Gram-positive intestinal bacteria. Bifidobacteria are probiotic friendly bacteria, which means that they may beneficially affect the host upon ingestion by improving the balance of the intestinal microflora.
