⠀ ⠀ A tangible glimpse at how an ear infection manifests in the Microbiology Laboratory.⠀ ⠀ This is Pseudomonas aeruginosa on Chocolate Agar. This culture was isolated from the ear sample of a patient with a reoccurring ear infection. ⠀ ⠀ An external ear canal infection may be caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and result in “swimmer’s ear.” ⠀ ⠀ Chocolate Agar (CHOC ) or Chocolate Blood Agar (CBA ), is a nonselective, enriched growth medium used for isolation of pathogenic bacteria. It is a variant of the blood agar plate, containing red blood cells that have been lysed by slowly heating to 80°C. 🧫 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #capetown #microbiology #microbiologist #microorganisms #agarart #bacteria #pathogen #pseudomonasaerginosa #microbiologia #agarplate #science #travel #canvas #light #photography #livingart #health #earinfection #laboratory #microbiology_lab #photooftheday #beautiful #photography #chocolateagar #nerd
