Very cool. I was wondering though, are the Y shaped things suppoed to be antibodies, or are they a microbe I'm not familiar with?

Thanks! They are not antibodies, they are Bifidobacteria, a common inhabitant of the intestines some of which are probiotic (provide health benefits if ingested live and in high enough quantities). It is my research organism .
