     I've been looking at a culture of Candida tropicalis under a microscope
at (1000 x) because subcultures from the primary culture weren't growing
well. I'm seeing something I need help explaining. Inside most of the cells
is an object about the size of a cell nucleus that's bouncing and tumbling
around in the cell very rapidly. I haven't noticed this in other cultures of
the organism. Is this a common artifact of microscopy? Is it a symptom of
something wrong with my culture? Thanks in advance.
