Campy CVA Agar Several media formulations exist for the selective primary isolation and cultivation of Campylobacter jejuni from fecal specimens. Campy CVA (CefoperazoneVancomycin-Amphotericin B) Agar is the medium of choice due to its balance of antibiotics, which yields good selectivity without sacrificing recovery. Proper atmospheric generation is equally critical for successful cultivation of Campylobacter spp. GasPak™ EZ CampyPouch™ or CampyPak™ Plus Systems create the ideal microaerophilic environment. Incubation at 42˚C increases the selectivity of this medium. Campy CVA Agar...
