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.

MRSA bacteria, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA, yellow) is a Gram-positive, round (coccus) bacterium, shown here on the microscopic fibres of a wound dressing. It is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. S. aureus 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.
