Unknown microorganisms, which live as normal flora in every human's blood, were isolated in pure cultures and represented on microscope color microphotographs and electron microscope photographs in the blood of medical professors and associated professors. The aim of this article is to demonstrate 3 methods used as routine procedure in order to isolate normal blood flora in pure cultures.
