1

what does unstained/unfixed preparation determine

determines morphology and motility (whether Brownian movement or true motility)

2

types of motility

rownian movement or true motility

3

microscopes used in unstained/unfixed preparation

BF, DF, PC

4

Type of preparation
natural conditions suspended in fluid

unstained/unfixed preparation

5

–bombardment of molecules that cause movement
-organism wiggles but retains position

Brownian movement

6

-most organisms with ___ exhibit Brownian movement

flagella

7

type of motility
-uniform direction
-move from one position to another

*True Motility

8

microscope for detection of Treponema pallidum and other spirochetes

*Darkfield

9

suspending medium (so bacteria can move freely) in wet mount

NSS

10

Two types of unfixed/unstained preparation

wet mount
hanging drop

11

better approach to examine motility
-uses a concavity slide and petroleum jelly (serves as a sealant)

hanging drop

12

3 procedures in fixed/stained preparation

smearing
fixation
staining

13

procedure in staining that requires not be too thick nor too thin; may be a clinical specimen or cultured


smear

14

if smear is...
-too thick:
-too thin:

-too thick: cells are overlapping
-too thin: cells are washed out

15

-if specimen is liquid/from broth, an ________ is used

inoculating loop

16

if specimen is solid, a _________ is used

needle

17

purpose of fixation

prevents autolysis, retards bacterial physiologic functions thus preserving morphology

18

type of fixation
cell’s molecules change shape, heat prevents cells from being washed out
-used for microbes

o Heat fixation

19

type of fixation
– no destruction of structure
-used for blood smear

o Chemical fixation

20

purpose of staining

increased visibility, reveals additional information about the bacteria, be able to study the structure easily since cells are not moving

21

In smearing, if sample is from solid culture medium, place _____________ on slide

1-2 drops of NSS or distilled water

22

why place1-2 drops of NSS or distilled water on slide if sample is from solid culture

for even distribution of sx on slide

23

possess chromophore (organic molecules which produce specific colors)

Dye (salt)

24

organic molecules which produce specific colors)

chromophore

25

Bacteria are slightly negatively charged at pH ?.

7

26

affinity and color of nucleic acids in the nucleus (using H&E as stain)

affinity: to basic dye
color: blue

27

affinity and color of cytoplasm (using H&E as stain))

affinity: to acidic dye
color: pink

28

Types of Staining:
– uses single dye/ one stain
-end color is the color of the stain used
-used for the analysis of characteristics of size, shape, and cell arrangement

Simple

29

Types of Staining:
uses more than 1 dye
-distinguishes between structure of a cell, between different types of cells by staining them with different colors
-react with specific microbial structures

differential

30

-determines source of molecules as contaminants

gram staining
