It is a question of:

- medium (high quality blood agar)
- humidity and temperature (normally 37 øC)
- gas mixture (we prefer hydrogen, not nitrogen)
- patience

Helicobacter bizzozeronii appears the most difficult species to 
handle. The group in Finland should know best ?

(Campylobacter jejuni is quite easy to handle)
