bioMerieux Launches First Ready-To-Use Enrichment Medium for Campylobacter in Foods
bioMerieux have launched a new, ready-to-use culture medium, CampyFood Broth (CFB) for the detection and enumeration of Campylobacter spp. This innovative broth will provide food processing companies with simple, complete and high quality solutions to help ensure the safety of their food products.
Campylobacter, primarily C. jejuni, is the main bacterial cause of gastro-enteritis and the third leading cause of death from foodborne infections worldwide.
The innovation of CampyFood broth (CFB) consists of convenient, ready-to-use minibags, which save preparation time in comparison to other methods, and reduce waste and handling risks related to glass containers.
'bioMerieux remains committed to providing innovative testing solutions for the detection of critical food pathogens such as Campylobacter,' said Alexandre Merieux, Corporate Vice President, Industrial Microbiology. 'We are pleased to provide CFB as yet another tool to help detect the leading cause of foodborne illnesses globally.'
Specifically developed for bioMerieux methods
To fully address laboratory needs, CampyFood broth has been designed to be used in several simplified testing protocols:
The official validation of these protocols, according to the ISO 16140 standard, is in progress.
