Bacterial flagellar stain


Photomicrograph of bacteria with polar or amphitrichous flagella. Magnification: 1000x.

A photomicrograph of a prepared slide showing many spiral-shaped bacteria that have been stained with a flagellar stain and magnified 1000x. The flagella appear as hair-like strands that extend outward from the ends of the cells. The flagellar arrangement is polar or amphitrichous (flagella are located at both ends of the cell).
