Example text

5-24 STAPHYLOCOCCUS ARRANGEMENT Staphylococcus aureus is shown in a blood smear. Note the staphylococci interspersed between the erythrocytes. S. aureus is a common opportunistic pathogen of humans. Cells are approximately 1µm in diameter. 5-25 TWO EXAMPLES OF COCCI (GRAM STAIN) Compare Moraxella catarrhalis (pink stain) and Micrococcus luteus (purple), both grown in culture. M. catarrhalis is a diplococcus with flattened adjacent sides. It is an inhabitant of the human upper respiratory tract, especially the nasal cavity, and is rarely pathogenic.

Note the weak ␤-hemolysis of the white colony in the upper right (arrow). White growth with ␤-hemolysis is characteristic of Staphylococcus aureus. 3-32 PIGMENT PRODUCTION ON SLANTS From left to right, Staphylococcus epidermidis (white), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (green), Chromobacterium violaceum (violet), Serratia marcescens (red/orange), Kocuria rosea (rose), and Micrococcus luteus (yellow). 3-33 INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE ON PIGMENT PRODUCTION Serratia marcescens was grown for 48 hours on Trypticase Soy Agar slants at five different temperatures.

After staining with carbolfuchsin, cells are reddish-purple. Steam heat enhances the entry of carbolfuchsin into cells. Decolorization with acid alcohol removes stain from acid-fast negative cells. Methylene blue is used to counterstain acid-fast negative cells. 6-15 THE ZIEHL-NEELSEN ACID-FAST STAIN Acid-fast cells stain reddish-purple; nonacid-fast cells stain blue or the color of the counterstain if a different one is used.
