Syphilis Time Lapse microscopy

Physician, biologist and filmmaker Jean Pierre Paul Comandon was born in Jarnac ( Charente). It was 1909, he had already earned a degree in Arts and Science, when he followed a microbiology course by Auguste Fernbach at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Fascineted by this ‘new found life’ he started another study in Paris at the Faculty of Medicine. It was at this faculty that Victor Henri started using the ultra-microscope. Comandon combined this with his studies on Syphillis.

Shot at 12-15 frames per second, the first time the world say the organism that causes Syphilis; Spirochaeta pallida , enjoy!

In cooperation with the Royal institute of tropical disease in Amsterdam and MicroDISH in Utrecht, LumiByte has developed an ultra fast method to determine bacterial growth and antibiotic susceptibility using Time Lapse imaging.
