Selective enrichment broth medium for isolation of Campylobacter jejuni.

Abstract

A new selective Campylobacter enrichment broth for the isolation of Campylobacter jejuni has been tested with fecal specimens of human, poultry, and bovine origin. We compared the isolation rate with that from the simultaneous direct plating of a duplicate specimen. Of the 380 duplicate specimens examined comparatively, we obtained a 46.3% increase in isolation of C. jejuni by using the new Campylobacter enrichment broth medium.
