a test to identify Group B β-streptococci based on their formation of a substance (CAMP factor) that enlarges the area of hemolysis formed by streptococcal β-hemolysin.

The cost of the Xpert GBS cartridge at the time of conducting this study was ZAR300.00 (USD30.45) per cartridge, whereas the cost of culture using Granada agar was ZAR19.00-154.00 (USD1.92-15.63) per test, depending on whether the CAMP test or latex agglutination was used to confirm the identity of the isolated colonies, respectively.
(1,7) The enriched broth is sub-cultured on blood agar plates, and presumptive isolated GBS colonies are identified by a characteristic narrow zone of G-hemolysis, followed by confirmation by standard phenotypic methods (e.g., CAMP test) or serological tests (e.g., agglutination with GBS antiserum).
The CAMP test is used for identification of group B streptococci that secrete CAMP factor contributing to increased hemolysis in the arrowheaded area when grown near [beta]-toxin producing S.
Beta haemolytic colonies were processed with modified oxidase test, Coagulase test, Bacitracin Sensitivity, Novobiocin Sensitivity and Camp test. If Modified Oxidase test was positive, it was identified as Micrococci.
We conducted the reverse CAMP test by using Staphylococcus aureus American Type Culture Collection (ATCC [Manassas, VA, USA]) 25923 and the CAMP test by using Rhodococcus equi ATCC 33701 according to standard procedures on Columbia sheep blood agar (Oxoid, Wesel, Germany) (3).
