This image shows a diagnostic procedure testing for the presence of the bacterium, Vibrio cholerae, the cause of cholera. These bacterial colonies had been cultivated on thiosulfate-citrate-bile-sucrose (TCBS) agar medium. Characteristic colonies can be selected, regrown on standard nutrient agar, and agglutinated in polyvalent O1 antiserum to make a rapid presumptive identification of V. cholerae-O1.
