Figure 6-13 Comparison of acridine orange fluorochroming and Gram stain. Gram stain of mycoplasma demonstrates inability to distinguish these cell wall-deficient organisms from amorphous gram-negative debris (A). Staining the same specimen with acridine orange confirms the presence of nucleic arfd-containing organisms (B). Gram stain distinguishes between gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (C), but all bacteria stain the same with the nonspecific acridine orange dye (D).
