This image depicts a front view of a Petri dish culture plate, which had contained a growth medium of blood agar, that had been inoculated with Yersinia pestis bacteria, and is seen here after a 48-hour incubation period. Y. pestis grows well on most standard laboratory media. After 48 – 72-hours, colonies appear grey-white to slightly yellow opaque, with raised irregular fried egg morphology, while alternatively, colonies may exhibit a shiny hammered copper textured surface.
