Three immunoelectron microscopy (IEM) methods were employed to show laboratory-cultivated Francisella tularensis. By the IEM assays, F. tularensis was distinguished from four antigenically distinct gram-negative bacteria. IEM should be a valuable tool for confirming presumptive isolates of F. tularensis and may potentially be useful for demonstrating other medically important bacteria.
