Antibiotic Resistance Testing TX

Second ARLN Border 2


Antibiotic Resistance (AR) is the ability of microorganisms to develop resistance to the effects of an antibiotic to which they were once sensitive. 

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Laboratory in Austin has the testing capacity and technology to detect, support, respond to, and prevent AR threats.

The Texas DSHS Laboratory assists with species identification, phenotypic and molecular characterization, colonization screening, and microbial susceptibility testing for select microorganisms.
