Under The Microscope


This is a blog dedicated to sharing and compiling many different images from under the microscope. From living to non-living, we can appreciate the invention of the microscope that has allowed us to see the into world of the very small.
micro-scopic
MRSA bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA, red) on the microscopic fibres of a wound dressing. MRSA is a gram-positive, round (coccus) bacterium that is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. It is carried by around 30 per cent of the population without causing any symptoms. However, in vulnerable people, such as those that have recently had surgery, it can cause wound infections, pneumonia and blood poisoning. Magnification: x1340 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
