ID#:14967
Description:Using ultraviolet (UV) illumination, this photomicrograph reveals the presence of numerous Treponema pallidum spirochetes. By using the indirect fluorescent antibody (FA) staining method, the specimen had been treated with Fluorescent Treponemal Antibody (FTA) Antigen, which made these bacteria glow under UV illumination. This specimen was extracted from a purified Treponema suspension from the Oak Ridge fraction 12.
The Syphilis Elimination Effort (SEE) is a national initiative that brings together health care providers, policy makers, community leaders and state and local public health agencies, to reduce syphilis rates in the United States. Working together, we have a unique opportunity to control this devastating disease, reduce the transmission of HIV, and protect unborn infants.
