Membrane filtration methods were developed and evaluated for the quantitative recovery of Campylobacter jejuni from environmental waters of low turbidity. The best of the studied procedures involved passaging the test water through a filter (pore size, 0.45 um) and plating it facedown on Campylobacter-selective agar. The filter was removed after overnight incubation, and the plate was streaked for isolation and then reincubated. The technique could be useful in the routine monitoring of finished waters for C. jejuni or during investigations of suspected waterborne outbreaks for water of low turbidity.
