fluorescently labelled human rotator cuff cells infected with P acnes

This image shows fluorescently labelled human rotator cuff cells infected with P acnes. The P acnes bacteria are detected with a specific monoclonal antibody, and are red in this image. The rotator cuff cells have their nuclei stained with DAPI, which fluoresces blue, and the cytoplasm of the cells are detected with an antibody to actin filaments and fluoresce green. This image was prepared by Mr. Boyang Qiu, an undergraduate student in Dr. David O’Gorman’s laboratory.

A team of London scientists was awarded for their development of a test that can accurately identify Propionibacterium acnes (P acnes) infection of the shoulder within 24 hours.
