Large rod shaped cells showing gram positive reaction in endospore forming Bacillus subtilis. Spores permit the cell to withstand adverse environmental conditions (heat, radiation, drying). Their protective coat prevents uptake of stain and therefore they appear as unstained pale cells in the photograph (see arrow). Spore forming organisms are commonly found in soil. Their wide distribution and ability to withstand heating has necessitated many of the procedures used to protect food materials.
