|Description:||Under the low-power magnification of 10X of a digital Keyence scope , this photograph depicts the colonial growth displayed by Gram-negative Ochrobactrum anthropi bacteria, which were cultured on sheep blood agar (SBA) medium, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 37°C.|
Ochrobactrum anthropi bacterium is widely distributed in aquatic environments, and though considered a “low-virulence organism”, and as an emerging human pathogen, has been implicated as a cause for intravenous line infections in individuals who were immunocompromised, undergoing chemotherapeutic treatment for cancer.
