This scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image reveals some of the ultrastructural features exhibited by two, spiral-shaped, Leptospira interrogans, strain-RGA bacteria. These two spirochetes were bound to a 0.2 µm filter. Strain RGA was isolated in 1915, by Uhlenhuth and Fromme, from the blood of a soldier in Belgium.
