Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture

This is a close-up of a Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture revealing this organism’s colonial morphology.

 

Note the colorless rough surface, which are typical morphologic characteristics seen in Mycobacterium tuberculosis colonial growth. Macroscopic examination of colonial growth patterns is still one of the ways microorganisms are often identified.
