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 spirochetes, and both the 10µm, and 20µm measurement marks, indicating the approximate size of these organisms. This image was created using a Zeiss AxioCam. See PHIL 20517, 20518, and 20520, for more images depicting this bacterium.
