Campylobacter antibodies are suitable for immunoassay research and development.
The bacterial genus Campylobacter are non-spore forming, rod shaped or curved, gram-negative bacteria of the family Campylobacteriacae. Over twenty-five species of Campylobacter have been identified but approximately 90% of human disease is caused by Campylobacter jejuni (C. jeuni). Infectious disease caused by pathogenic Campylobacter species (Campylobacter spp) is referred to as Campylobacteriosis. Other species of Campylobacter causing Campylobacteriosis include C. coli, C.lari and C. upsaliensis but cases are less frequently reported.
Birds, including poultry, are major reservoirs of C. jejuni, where is survives in the intestines and crop of healthy birds. Most reported outbreaks of Campylobacteriosis have been associated with the consumption of undercooked poultry and poultry products. Symptoms of infection generally include fever, abdominal cramps, watery or haemorrhagic diarrhoea and weight loss. Although the disease is self-limiting, complications may develop in some cases after infection, which include irritable bowel syndrome, Guillain Barre syndrome and other autoimmune neuropathies (CDC).
