Minnesota Antibiotic Stewardship Data
An antibiogram is the compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens isolated from a specific human or animal population. Statewide, we have a human antibiogram of isolates sent to the Public Health Laboratory at the Minnesota Department of Health. In addition, for their own daily use, many health care facilities produce tailored antibiograms that reflect their specific patient population.
Antibiograms can serve as valuable tools in guiding therapy choices.
- Antimicrobial Susceptibilities of Selected Pathogens (MDH Antibiogram)
The Antimicrobial Susceptibilities of Selected Pathogens, also known as the MDH antibiogram, includes a compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens that have been submitted to the MDH Public Health Laboratory.

National Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network
- CDC: Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network
The Minnesota Department of Health's Public Health Laboratory is one of seven regional laboratories that make up the national Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network (ARLN), established by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As part of the ARLN, Minnesota plays a key role in helping the nation understand and combat antibiotic resistance.
