A comparison of two culture media for the recovery of thermophilic campylobacters in broiler farm samples



A comparison of two culture media for the recovery of thermophilic campylobacters in broiler farm samples



Journal of Microbiological Methods 54(3): 367-371



A study to evaluate the performance of two different brands of media (Oxoid, Basingstoke, UK, and Mast Diagnostics, Merseyside, UK) for the isolation of thermophilic campylobacters from a range of broiler farm samples was undertaken. Oxoid media performed significantly better than the Mast formulations with overall Campylobacter recovery rates of 46% and 30.5%, respectively, observed from 213 samples tested (p<=0.05).
