Growth kinetics and cell morphology of attenuated B. pseudomallei strains with and without CAZ. Growth (a) and cell size (b) of the susceptible (S) Bp82 and resistant (R) JB039 strains were evaluated over 12 h at 35 °C. Growth was measured by the Segmentation and Extraction of Surface Area (SESA) algorithm. Cell size was measured by the Segmentation and Extraction of Average Length (SEAL) algorithm. Both graphs represent mean values ± standard deviations from three replicate wells. Optical screen images (c) of Bp82 and JB039 were taken of cell suspensions after 6 h in broth containing 16 μg/ml CAZ and in broth alone
