Rapid Identification and Biotyping of Thermophilic Campylobacters
Campylobacter jejuni is the commonest cause of human bacterial enteritis in the U.K. However few laboratories identify isolates to species level and sub-species typing is limited to specialist reference centres. Futhermore there is a lack of standardised reagents for sub-species typing methods such as serotyping and bacteriophage typing. It is not surprising therefore that the epidemiology of the majority of cases of Campylobacter enteritis is poorly understood.
