Under a magnification of 400X, this photomicrograph depicted a number of live, newly discovered, Borrelia mayonii spirochetes, that were in a modified liquid culture of Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly (BSK) medium, while being viewed using a dark field microscopy technique. Note the characteristic corkscrew shape of the bacterial spirochetes, and the 20µm measurement mark indicating the approximate size of these organisms. This image was one of a number of screengrabs, taken from videos created, while using a Zeiss Imager.AI microscope, to which a Canon Vixia G20 camcorder had been attached by way of a Martin Microscope MM99-58 adapter. See PHIL 20517, for another of these still video-capture images.
