Abstract

This article traces the origins of bacteriological research, with particular attention to the role of Robert Koch, and his postulates, on infectious agents. By chronologically following Koch's work on anthrax, germ photography and tuberculosis, it shows how the visual representation of germs transformed laboratory research in medical science.
