Details: By inventing the simple microscope, van Leeuwenhoek became the first to observe and describe Bacteria by 1683. Two hundred years later, Hans Christian Gram introduced a staining technique. The most universal staining technique for Bacteria; A standard procedure in medical microbiology; Important for Bacterial classification & identification; Differentiating germs as Gram Positive or Gram-negative. For each of the 30 bacteria on this Table: Determine its Gram Stain reaction (or explain why not); Identify its shape with terms. Estimate its size in micrometers. MEDICALLY-IMPORTANT BACTERIA Staphylococcus aureus Streptococcus pyogenes Lactobacillus Acidophilus Salmonella typhi Hemophilus influenzae Vibrio cholera Mycobacterium tuberculosis Escherichia coli Clostridium tetani Streptococcus thermophilus Listeria monocytogenes Shigella dysenteriae Borrelia burgdorferi Clostridium botulinum Mycoplasma pneumonia Treponema pallidum Streptococcus mutans Pseudomonas aeruginosa Coxiella burnetii Helicobacter pylori Chlamydia trachomatis Corynebacterium diphtheriae Mycobacterium leprae Propionibacterium acnes Clostridium difficile Bacillus anthracis Neisseria meningitidis Streptomyces griseus Thermus aquaticus Nocardia asteroides Finally, discuss only one of these 4 clinical characteristics for each bacterium: Pathogenicity and the Disease it causes Public health importance as an Opportunistic Pathogen Potential benefits as Normal Body Flora Mode of transmission in Nosocomial Infections or ‘HAI’
