This scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicted four views of Gram-negative, Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. Under this highly magnified view, details of the protective, adhesive matrix, which this colony had secreted, are revealed. This molecular matrix consists of polymeric constituents known as the extracellular polymeric substance, or EPS. See PHIL 10250 for an enlarged view of the colorized inset, which distinguishes the diplococcal pairs.
