Accurately, specifically and easily enumerate Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli from poultry and related samples using Thermo Scientific™ Brilliance™ CampyCount Agar. The transparent medium, on which Campylobacter produce distinct dark red colonies, makes identification and enumeration significantly easier than on traditional charcoal or blood-containing agar. The transparency of the medium also allows enumeration using plate readers for even greater efficiency.
Campylobacter is endemic in many poultry populations, with Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli being responsible for the majority of infections. As legislation moves towards enumerative limits on Campylobacter in poultry, food producers will put pressure on poultry companies to provide meat with low numbers of Campylobacter to reduce human infection.
Brilliance CampyCount Agar has been validated and approved by MicroVal (according to ISO 16140: 2003 standard) against the reference method ISO/TS 10272-2: 2006 for the selective enumeration of thermotolerant Campylobacter species, in particular C. jejuni and C. coli, in poultry products. This study included both the Thermo Scientific O.B.I.S. Campy kit and Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Dryspot Campylobacter test as alternative confirmation methods to those described in the reference method ISO/TS 10272-2: 2006.
