Abstract

The Spiral Plater System used for enumeration of bacteria was evaluated for the titration of Carnpylobacter phages. Twelve phages of C. jejuni were titrated using the conventional surface droplet technique, soft agar overlay‐pour plate technique, and the Spiral Plater System. Phage counts obtained by the three methods were similar but the Spiral Plater System showed greater precision than the other methods.
