Bad to the Bone: On In Vitro and Ex Vivo Microbial Biofilm Ability to Directly Destroy Colonized Bone Surfaces without Participation of Host Immunity or Osteoclastogenesis - Fig 12

The geometry of control bone sample (A, left side of Figure), incubated for 30 days in sterile media and geometry of treated bone sample (B, right side of Figure), which was used as a surface for S. aureus biofilm growth. The green surface represents position points which did not change significantly from day 0 to day 30. The colors from light blue to violet represent points which collapsed during 30 days in comparison to day 0, and colors from orange to red represent points which were higher after 30 days of incubation than the same points in the beginning of experiment (day 0).
