Single-step growth curve of the Campylobacter phages that composed the cocktail: (a) Phage phiCcoIBB35; (b) Phage phiCcoIBB37; (c) Phage phiCcoIBB12. Single-step growth experiments were performed in order to assess the latent period and burst size of a single round of phage replication: phage phiCcoIBB35 has a burst size of 24 pfu and a latent period of 52.5 min; phage phiCcoIBB37 has a burst size of 9 pfu and a latent period of 67.5 min; phage phiCcoIBB12 has a burst size of 22 pfu and a latent period of 82.5 min. Samples were taken every 15 min for 4 h. The data was fitted to a four-parameter symmetric sigmoid model. Non-linear regression was performed to calculate the latent period and burst size. Error bars represent the standard deviation.
