Campylobacter-Phage/phage typing

I am starting a project in which I need to locate a phage that would lyse a
C. jejuni isolate.  Well, I've just looked at the ATCC prices, and to order
a complete set of the typing phage and the host strains would run 8 Grand.

Can anyone refer me to a lab. in the US that might be able to take my C.
jejuni culture and find a phage that would lyse it.  For my purposes I don't
need a complete
phage typing analysis. The phage itself is unimportant so long as it will
lyse my C. jejuni  strain.
