Binding and uptake of S. aureus to osteoblasts: a Osteoblasts were incubated with FITC-labelled bacteria at either 37 ° C or 4 °C. Then fluorescence associated with the cells was determined (the very left panel shows the autofluorescence of the cells). b Binding and uptake of bacteria could be confirmed by laser scan microscopy (bacteria in green; nuclei in blue)
