This image depicts a photomicrograph of an unidentified tissue sample, that was been processed using the indirect immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) technique, and viewed under fluorescent lighting. Note the detection of what had been the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a negative-sense, enveloped RNA virus. The virion is variable in shape and size (120 - 300 nm), is unstable in the environment, surviving only a few hours on environmental surfaces, and is readily inactivated with soap and water and disinfectants.
