Under a magnification of 400X, this photomicrograph of a fluorescent antibody (FA) stained specimen, revealed how HeLa cells had been infected with Type-A, Chlamydia trachomatis. The cell line of choice is the McCoy cell line, however a particular strain of HeLa cells, the HeLa 299-24 strain, can be used to culture C. trachomatis. For identification, either iodine, or FA stains are usually used.
