Antimicrobial Susceptibilities of Selected Pathogens (MDH Antibiogram)
The Antimicrobial Susceptibilities of Selected Pathogens, also known as the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) antibiogram, includes a compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens that have been submitted to the MDH Public Health Laboratory.
A select group
of isolates are submitted to MDH, therefore it is important to read the
notes entitled, "Sampling Methodology" and "Trends, Comments
and Other Pathogens."

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.
