Campylobacter is a motile gram-negative bacterium that causes Campylobacteriosis when it gets lodged in the walls of intestine. They are usually carried in the intestinal tract of animals and therefore contaminate foods of animal origin. Although raw milk is a frequently reported vehicle of outbreaks of Campylobacter enteritis, studies have revealed that mishandled poultry is more important than raw milk in transmitting Campylobacter jejuni enteritis. The utilization pattern for several carbohydrates (e.g. lactose, maltose, xylose, sucrose etc.) is often needed to help identify an organism genus and species. Kings OF Medium is formulated as recommended by APHA for studying the oxidation-fermentation reaction of carbohydrates by Campylobacter species.
