Bacteria found on mobile phone, SEM Featured SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) Inspired Art Print

Bacteria found on mobile phone, SEM

Bacteria found on mobile phone. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bacteria cultured from a mobile phone. Tests have revealed the average handset carries 18 times more potentially harmful germs than a flush handle in a men's toilet. With frequent use phones remain warm, creating the ideal breeding ground for bacteria. With touch-screen phones, the same part of the phone touched with fingertips is pressed up against the face and mouth, increasing chances of infection. In tests E. coli, Haemophilus influenzae and MRSA were amongst infectious bacteria found on handsets. Common harmless bacteria include Staphylococcus epidermidis, Micrococcus, Streptococcus viridans, Moraxella, and bacillus species. Magnification: x4000 when printed at 10cm wide

Virus particles and bacteria, SEM Featured SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) Inspired Art Print

Virus particles and bacteria, SEM

Vaccinia virus particles and bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of vaccinia virus particles (green). Unlike most viruses, vaccinia replicates in the cells cytoplasm, rather than the nucleus. Vaccinia belongs to the orthopoxvirus group. It causes cowpox, a disease of cattle and humans that produces skin lesions. It was first used by Jenner in 1796 to vaccinate against smallpox, a related but more deadly human disease. There are approximately ten times as many bacterial cells in the human flora as there are human cells in the body, with the largest number of the human flora being in the gut flora, and a large number on the skin.

Spinal cord, LM Featured SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) Inspired Art Print

Spinal cord, LM

Spinal cord. Light micrograph (LM) of a cross-section through the human spinal cord in the lumbar region. The spinal cord consists of a butterfly-shaped core (dark blue) known as grey matter, which consists of nerve cells. Surrounding the grey matter is a larger region of white matter, made up of myelinated nerve fibre bundles or tracts. It is the white matter which is largely responsible for transmitting impulses. The spinal cord is wrapped in three layers of membrane called the meninges (outer edge). The cord extends from the stem of the brain to vertebrae of the lower back; 31 pairs of nerves arise along its length (visible in the space between the cord and the meninges), carrying information to and from the brain and body.
