Title: Campylobacter And Related Organisms Isolated From Broiler Carcasses In Groceries In Khartoum North, Sudan
Author: Abd Elgauom, Nour
Abstract: This study was carried out during the period June to August 2008. Hundred samples were collected randomly from carcass cuts (Breast, thighs and filleting) of broilers chicken from different retail market places in Khartoum state. The study aimed to isolate Campylobacter spp from broiler meat using two types of selective media, Skirrow’s selective medium and Campylobacteragar base medium. The optimal incubation condition used for culturing was 42°C for 48ºC hour. Optimal micro aerobic growth required for Campylobacter .jejuniwas achieved by using anaerobic jar with microaerophilic gas generating kits, containing 5%O2, 10% CO2, and 85%N2. All of samples were negative to Campylobacter spp,however different species of Enterobacteriaceae wereidentified in the condition of Campylobacter. The isolated Enterobacteriaceae were as fallow 55%Klebsiella spp, 17% Enterobacter spp, 16% Pasteurella. Haemolytica spp and 12% Listria spp. This finding indicated that poultry meat may introduce several species of bacteria pathogens during processing that can grow in Campylobacter medium. The findings were considered to be of value in health education programs on food hygiene and safety in Sudan.
