Background : Campylobacter species are common bacterial pathogens causing gastroenteritis in humans worldwide.
Materials and Methods : A total of 148 randomly sheep carcasses were sampled by surface section of neck meat taken immediately after slaughter analyzed using microbiological examinations.
Results : Campylobacter spp. was isolated from 10.13% meat cultures samples examined. Among these 80% sample were C. jejuni and 20% sample were C. coli. Using PCR assays, the number of positive campylobacters increased to 11.48%. Of these positive samples, 82.35% were C. jejuni and 17.65% were C. coli. Significantly higher prevalence rates of Campylobacter spp. (p<0.05) were found in the meat samples taken in summer (47.05%).
Conclusion : The PCR is a reliable and sensitive method which can be used as a diagnostic technique for the detection of campylobacter in lamb samples.
Keywords: Campylobacter jejuni Campylobacter coli, PCR, Sheep
