AIMS To determine the prevalence of Campylobacter in surface waters of a highly populated Mediterranean area. METHODS AND RESULTS Surface water and wastewater samples were collected from an area in the north-east of Spain during a 2-year study. All the samples were analysed using the MPN method and Multiplex PCR to quantify and identify Campylobacter. It was detected in 82% of the samples from the Llobregat River with a mean of 1·3 MPN 100 ml(-1). The lowest counts were obtained in summer… CONTINUE READING
