Produced by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), this digitally-colorized, scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicts four yellow-colored, spheroid-shaped, methicillin-resistant, Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria, as they were about to be ingested by a much larger, red-colored, human white blood cell. The bacteria shown are members of the Los Angeles Clone (LAC) strain of MRSA.
