ID#: 10993
Under a very high magnification of 15000X, this digitally-colorized scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed the presence of a single, Gram-negative, Salmonella typhimurium bacterium, which was imaged right at the point, where it was completing the process of cell division, resulting in the formation of two separate organisms. This dividing bacterium had been isolated from a pure culture. See PHIL 10992 for a black and white version of this image.
