CAMPYLOBACTER SELECTIVE (SKIRROW) BIOPREPARE is used to selectively isolate Campylobacter spp from clinical, food and environmental samples.
The nutritional base is Columbia agar which is enriched with dissolved horse red. Sodium thiosulphate, pyruvic acid and iron sulfate enhance the microaerobics of Camylobacter spp.
Peptones provide nitrogenous growth factors, carbon, sulfur and trace elements. Yeast extract is a rich source of vitamin B.
The use of the 4 antimicrobial substances inhibits the growth of the rich microbial flora of the stool resulting in the isolation of C. jejuni.
