Campylobacter Outbreak

Campylobacter is a group of spiral bacteria that covers 20 species, the most frequently reported as being the cause of human diseases are Campylobacter jejuni. Other species (1-10%) have been isolated from individuals with campylobacteriosis. The bacterium is usually transmitted to humans through contaminated food (raw poultry meat and unpasteurized milk), but also feces. Qualitative and quantitative detection of the bacterium can be performed using our Genprice kit for the detection and quantification of Campylobacter.the most frequently associated with human diseases being the species C. jejuni (subspecies jejuni) and C. coli. Other species like C. lari and C. Upsaliensis have also been isolated from patients with diarrheal disease.

The symptoms of this disease usually appear 2 to 5 days after infection with the bacteria, but the duration of the incubation period can range from one to 10 days.
The most common clinical symptoms of Campylobacter infections are diarrhea (often bloody), abdominal pain, fever, headache, nausea and / or vomiting. The symptoms usually last between three and six days.
Deaths due to campylobacteriosis are rare and usually only affect very young or elderly patients, or people already suffering from another serious illness such as AIDS.

Sources and transmission

Campylobacter species are found in most warm-blooded animals. They are present in food animals such as poultry, cattle, pigs, sheep and ostriches, and in pets such as dogs and cats. These bacteria have also been found in crustaceans.
In general, it is thought that the main route of transmission is food and involves the consumption of undercooked meat and meat products or raw or contaminated milk.

Helicobacter Antibody


Treatment is usually unnecessary, except electrolyte replacement and rehydration. Antimicrobial therapy is recommended in invasive cases (where the bacterium invades the intestinal mucosa and damages the tissues) or to kill the bacteria in healthy carriers (individuals who harbor Campylobacter in their body and continue to excrete it. remaining asymptomatic).

Campylobacter detection and quantification

Campylobacter detection and quantification kit is based on the principle of the real-time PCR technique, a specific detection method with high sensitivity, well established in the food industry.
Fast: results between 2 – 24 hours

Anti-E.Coli Antibody

Identification of the species

Identification of the species Detection of the genus (R 310 05) and: thermotolerant species: C. jejuni, C. coli, C. lari, C. upsaliensis Other Campylobacter: C. fetus, C. hyointestinalis

WHO is strengthening the capacity of national and regional laboratories for the surveillance of foodborne pathogens such as Campylobacter and Salmonella.
Global Network for Foodborne Disease Surveillance (GFN)
WHO also promotes integrated surveillance of antimicrobial resistance of pathogens in the food chain by collecting human, food and animal samples and analyzing data across relevant sectors.
