As a closer view of PHIL 12405, this photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of MacConkey agar, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 37�C. See both PHIL 12410 and 12411, for views of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a greater temperature of 42�C, and note that PHIL 12419 and 12420 depict the same bacterial specie grown on the same media and at the same temperature, but for only 24hrs. Take a look at PHIL 12427 and 12428, which depicts B. thailandensis grown on the same medium, but at a greater temperature (42�C), and only half the time (24hr).
