California Antimicrobial Resistance Laboratory Network

The California Antimicrobial Resistance (AR) Laboratory Network includes clinical and public health laboratorians, infection control practitioners, and epidemiologists working together to address antimicrobial resistance. The goals of the AR Lab Network are to enhance situational awareness of healthcare-associated AR pathogens by facilitating information and data sharing, and to connect healthcare facilities and laboratories to additional testing resources.

Participants join periodic webinar conferences to learn and share information about laboratory testing issues and resources. Participants are also asked to share aggregated data on a routine basis. To learn more about the California AR Lab Network and receive updates, please sign up online.
