Identification of Strains of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli by PCR and Correlation with Phenotypic Characteristics
Identification of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli is based on a limited number of phenotypic tests. In recent years, one of the tests allowing the differentiation of these 2 species from others: susceptibility to nalidixic acid, has become less reliable because of the occurrence of resistant strains. Furthermore, differentiation between the 2 species relies on only one test: hippurate hydrolysis.
