This is one of several selective media available for the isolation of Campylobacter spp. in clinical, food and environmental laboratories. Campylobacter agar base is based on the formulation from Bolton and Robertson.
The peptone is the source of the required nitrogen, carbon and vitamins. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic balance in the medium.
The medium is enriched with lysed horse blood and made selective by the addition of cefoperazone, to suppress other enteric organisms, and amphotericin to suppress yeast and fungal growth (Preston supplement LS0010).
