A closer view of PHIL 12408, this photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of sheep's blood agar (SBA), for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 42�C. Also, see both PHIL 12401 and 12402, for views of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a lesser temperature of 37�C. PHIL 12423 and 12424 display B. thailandensis colonial growth on the same medium, but at a lesser temperature (37�C), and only half the time (24hr). Finally, PHIL 12431 and 12432 display this specie's bacterial growth, again on SBA, for half the time (24hr), but at the same temperature (42�C).
