Campylobacter is a food-borne pathogen and is a major cause of food poisoning. Intertek is the partner you can trust to help you detect this bacteria in your food products.

Working with a trusted partner who is up-to-date with the constantly evolving threat of Campylobacter is of principal importance given that testing for the bacteria demands significant expertise, technology and an ongoing safety procedure.

Our team of experts work with a variety of major poultry producers and suppliers, investigating new processes to minimise the number of Campylobacter on whole meats and their packaging in retail outlets. This ensures that safe and quality products are delivered to customers.

From our state-of-the-art facilities, our world-class microbiology laboratories test for the full range of potentially harmful food-borne micro-organisms. These include pathogens like Campylobacter, Salmonella and Listeria, spoilage organisms such as Pseudomonads, Yeasts and Moulds, and hygiene indicators like E.Coli.

We offer you a choice of a broad spectrum of testing methods for the detection of Campylobacter, including cultivation on selective media and confirmation of bacterial growth. To further speed up the analysis, we have evolved our own bespoke molecular detection method of Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), and constantly review and update our testing methodologies to keep pace with the ever-evolving threats posed by Campylobacter.
