Rotavirus double-shelled particles

CDC/ Dr. Erskine Palmer (Content provider) - Bryon Skinner (Photo credit)

This transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology of a number of intact rotavirus double-shelled particles. Distinctive rim of radiating capsomeres.- 1981-

Influenza virions (TEM)

CDC/ Dr. Terrence Tumpey (Content provider) - Cynthia Goldsmith (Photo credit)

This negative stained transmission electron micrograph (TEM) shows recreated 1918 influenza virions that were collected from supernatants of 1918-infected Madin-Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) cells cultures 18 hours after infection.

To separate these virions, the MDCK cells are spun down (centrifugation), and the 1918 virus in the fluid is immediately fixed for negative staining. The solid mass in lower center contains MDCK cell debris that did not spin down during the procedure.

Poliovirus (TEM)

Transmission electron micrograph, negative stain image of the polio virus (1971).

Ebola hemorrhagic fever

Frederick A. Murphy

Created by CDC microbiologist Frederick A. Murphy, this colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion.

This image was created by Nahid Bhadelia, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Section of Infectious Diseases, and the Associate Hospital Epidemiologist at Boston Medical Center. It was captured while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) 2014 Domestic Ebola ETU Training Course for healthcare workers was underway. The program had been designed in order to educate participants who would be deployed as members of the West African Ebola Response team, as to the proper protocols to be followed when treating Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF) patients. Here you can see two participants who’d paired up in order to dress in their required personal protective equipment (PPE). By applying the buddy system, each healthcare worker can act as the secondary check for the other, thereby, assuring that the each other’s PPE had been properly secured.
