Salmonella bacterium. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a Salmonella sp. bacterium. It is seen on a fractal background. This Gram-negative bacterium occurs in the intestines of humans and animals. Several Salmonella species cause human food poisoning (salmonellosis) when contaminated food such as meat, milk and eggs, is eaten. Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. The infection is treated by rehydration therapy, although antibiotics must be taken if the bacteria have spread into the bloodstream. Magnification unknown

This print showcases a Salmonella bacterium in all its intricate detail. The vibrant colors and fractal background add an artistic touch to this scientific marvel. As a Gram-negative bacterium, Salmonella resides in the intestines of both humans and animals. However, it is not just any ordinary bacterium - several species of Salmonella are notorious for causing human food poisoning, known as salmonellosis. Contaminated foods like meat, milk, and eggs serve as vehicles for transmission when consumed by unsuspecting individuals. The symptoms of salmonellosis are far from pleasant; they include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. To combat this infection, rehydration therapy becomes crucial. In severe cases where the bacteria have infiltrated the bloodstream, antibiotics must also be administered. This photograph serves as a reminder of the invisible threats that exist within our environment. It highlights the importance of proper food handling and hygiene practices to prevent such infections from occurring. Through microbe research and understanding their pathogenic nature at a microscopic level through electron microscopy techniques like TEM (transmission electron micrograph), scientists can gain valuable insights into combating these harmful bacteria. Science Photo Library has once again captured the beauty within science with this stunning portrayal of a flagellated Salmonella bacterium – an image that simultaneously educates and fascinates viewers about microbiology's complex world.
