WHONET is a free Windows-based multilingual database software developed for the management and analysis of microbiology laboratory data with a special focus on the analysis of antimicrobial susceptibility test results. The software is primarily used to enhance the local use of data for local needs: clinical decision support, antimicrobial use policy, infection control and outbreak detection, identifying laboratory test performance, and characterization of local microbial and resistance epidemiology. Additionally, it is used to promote local, national, regional, and global collaborations through the exchange of data and sharing of experiences.

CAPTURA used the WHONET software for retrospective AMR data collection, analysis and interpretation. WHONET was particularly useful during digitization of paper data, conversion of LIS-exported data using BacLink and collation of data from different sources. It also helped the project to encrypt data, preventing receipt of patient identifiers. In collaboration with the WHONET team, CAPTURA developed Epidemiology and Quality Control reports (directly exported from the software) to assist users in data analysis and report generation.

AMR Tracker
Quick Analysis of AMR Patterns and Trends (QAAPT) Dashboard
To assist in interpretation and visualization of AMR data, CAPTURA is working on developing the QAAPT application. QAAPT is intended for use by decision-makers, such as healthcare professionals and national AMR coordinators, engaged in AMR surveillance. It is possible for users to analyze AMR data and generate dashboards to display AMR patterns, trends and antibiograms.

The development is still work in progress as we are seeking input and feedback from relevant experts. If you would like to see the latest version, please go to

AMC Visualization Tool
To assist in interpretation and visualization of AMC data, CAPTURA has developed a tool for users to easily upload and display AMC data. The tool can generate various charts and graphs to show DID by year, consumption by AWaRE categories, AMC by pharmaceutical sub-groups, AMC by route of administration and so on.
