Campylobacter Agar Plate is supplied by HiMedia. It is supplied as sterile ready prepared media in 90 mm disposable plates. This red coloured medium has a pH in the range of 7.2 to 7.6. Campylobacter Agar is widely used for the selective isolation of Campylobacter species from faecal specimens, food and environmental specimens. It is advisable to store this product between 2-8C. Composition (in gm/L) is as follows:

Proteose peptone (15.00)

Liver digest (2.50)

Yeast extract (5.00)

Sodium chloride (5.00)

Agar (12.00)

Campylobacter Agar Base is recommended by APHA for the selective isolation of Campylobacter species. It is well supplemented to support luxuriant growth of Campylobacter species. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic equilibrium of the medium. Blood serves as an additional source of nutrients including X-factor. The antibiotic supplements Blaser-Wang and Skirrow, reduce the growth of normal enteric bacteria while enhancing the growth and recovery of C. jejuni from faecal specimens. Amphotericin B in Blaser- Wang supplement greatly or completely inhibits growth of fungi. C. jejuni colonies appear non-haemolytic, flat and gray with an irregular edge or raised and round with a mucoid appearance. Some strains may be tan or slightly pink. Swarming can be observed on moist surfaces. Incubation at 35-37C may show a delayed growth of C. jejuni cultures. Incubating the plates at 42C can fasten this. The contaminated food sample (10 to 25 grams) is enriched in Campylobacter Enrichment Broth Base.
