Product Summary and Explanation
Many experts consider Campylobacter to be the leading cause of enteric illness in the US. Campylobacterspp. can cause mild to severe diarrhea, with loose, watery stools often followed by bloody diarrhea. Thispathogenic species is highly infective, and transmitted by contaminated food or water. Consumption of food and water contaminated with untreated animal or human waste accounts for 70% of Campylobacter-related illnesses each year. The foods include unpasteurized milk, meats, poultry, shellfish fruits, and vegetables.

Campylobacter Enrichment Broth(Bolton’s), along with nutritional ingredients, contains compounds which enhance the aerotolerance of microaerophilic bacteria by suppressing the toxic form of oxygen.
