Comment: Test is also part of the Enteric Panel 2 and Enteric Panel 3. Antimicrobial susceptibilities are not applicable.

Recent data has shown a dramatic shift among the species of Campylobacter involved in small ruminant and camelid abortion cases.  Increases have been documented in the incidence of Campylobacter jejuni abortions with research showing that it has now replaced Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus as the predominant cause of sheep abortions in the United States.  We will continue to offer fluorescent antibody (FA) testing for Campylobacter fetus subsp.  fetus, however the culture has been discontinued and replaced with Campylobacter jejuni culture.
