|Abstract: ||Out of 100 faecal swab samples, 88 thermophilic Campylobacter representing ten herds were isolated.
The species were identified by biotyping and multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Of the isolates, 86 (97.7%)
were C. coli, one was C. lari, and one was C. jejuni. All three species were isolated from the same herd. Automatic riboprints
were performed with the PstI restriction enzyme and RiboPrinter® (automated microbial characterization system).
The identification of the isolates was predicted when the corresponding pattern matched one of the patterns in the
DuPont identification (DUP-ID) library and was then assigned an identification number. A total of 81 selected C. coli
isolates were riboprinted. The isolates could be divided into two clades and five subclades, and 19 isolates could be
given five different DUP-IDs from the library: DUP-PST1-1182 (n=6), DUP-PST1-1208 (n=10), DUP-PST1-1175
(n=1), DUP-PST1-1140 (n=1), and DUP-PST1-1163 (n=1). Pigs are healthy carriers of C. coli which showed a high
degree of diversity among and within the herds.|
