Campylobacter species are ubiquitous in the environment inhabiting a wide variety of ecological niches. Infection with a Campylobacter species is one of the most common causes of human bacterial gastroenteritis. Most species are found in animals (cattle, swine) and cause infertility and abortion. Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli both lead to severe diarrhea when ingested. ISO 10272-1:2006, as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration BAM recommend the use of modified charcoal cefoperazone deoxycholate agar (mCCDA) for the detection of Campylobacter species as the as a primary selective medium. But colourless colonies of Campylobacter are often difficult to detect on black colored medium. Therefore a chromogenic medium based on conventional mCCDA, was developed for the detection of Campylobacter species.
