This Petri dish culture plate had contained cycloserine, cefoxitin, and fructose agar (CCFA), which had been inoculated with a Clostridium difficile bacterial culture, and had subsequently given rise to numerous bacterial colonies. In this particular view, the plate had been illuminated using long-wave UV irradiation, hence, the bacterial colonies emitted a yellow-green, or chartreuse fluorescent glow.
