Campylobacter Selective Supplement is used for the cultivation of campylobacters, and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
The selective supplement makes the medium selective for C. jejuni. and C. coli when incubated at 37°C. With this product incubation at 42°C is no longer necessary and higher recovery rates have been reported at 37°C than at 42°C. The supplement consists of cefoperazone and amphotericin and is superior to the selective combination of Skirrow, Butzler and Blazer-Wang all of which contain antibiotics shown to be inhibitors to C. coli.
