Poultry products have the potential to be a significant contributor to human food-borne illness due to their relatively high frequency of contamination with Campylobacter jejuni.

This report covers the progress made towards developing a suitable probe for C. jejuni, based on phage displayed peptides.

While the phage peptides exhibited all the properties desirable of a capture probe, the high genetic diversity of C. jejuni represented a challenge to the development of a real-time diagnostic, capable of binding to multiple isolates of this bacterium.
