Pharmaceutical Companies- Antibiotics
Global biotechnology companies that are involved in the development and manufacturing of antibiotics, and that have testing labs or clinics include Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group, Kangmei Pharmaceuticals, and Vertex Pharmaceuticals. I've developed a list of eight companies that fit this set of criteria. The majority of the companies have over 10,000 employees, although I included a few that don't because they are on this list of the top 25 biotechnology companies in the world, which classifies them as a large company. In addition, I used that same list as my metric for classifying each company as a biotechnology company. You'll find a deep dive of my research below.

The company has a 74% stake in Gland Pharmaceuticals, an Indian pharmaceutical manufacturing company that specializes in antibiotics, among other drugs. Gland's facilities include dedicated analytical and microbiological testing labs.
Kangmei is among the leading antibiotics manufacturers in China, according to this source. According to another source, the company has medical testing and clinical laboratories.
Vertex is developing antibiotics, according to this source, and performs clinical trials (based on this source and this source), indicating they likely have a testing lab facility.
Teva manufactures antibiotics such as cephalexin, and has at least one testing lab in the United States, based on this job listing.
Allergan is involved in the manufacture of antibiotics such as Teflaro and ATM-AVI. Based on this job listing, we can assume that Allergan has microbiological testing facilities.
Novo Nordisk is involved in the development and manufacture of antibiotics through its subsidiary Xellia Pharmaceuticals. Novo performs clinical trials as part of the company's services, so it's clear that they have lab testing facilities.
This company manufactures such antibiotics as Cayston and Truvada. They have dedicated facilities for laboratory testing, including drug product testing, such as this one in collaboration with WuXi PharmaTech.
This company is involved in the manufacture of antibiotics, among other products, and has medical testing and clinical laboratories, according to this source.
To wrap up, I've provided a list of eight large biotechnology companies that are involved in the development and manufacturing of antibiotic drugs and that also have testing labs or clinics.
