Biotest is a global company that supplies plasma protein products and biotherapeutic drugs. Our products are primarily used in the therapeutic areas of clinical immunology, haematology and intensive care medicine. For patients with serious and often chronic diseases they provide targeted treatment, which generally enable them to lead almost normal lives.
Within our areas of specialisation, we start from pre-clinical and clinical development to manufacturing and global marketing. Research, development and production are carried out at our main headquarters in Germany. Our own sales organisations (subsidiaries) and cooperating partners represent our global distribution network.
Headquarters and subsidiaries
In addition to the company headquarters in Dreieich (near Frankfurt, Germany), USA, Biotest has subsidiaries and sales companies in seven European countries (France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Spain) and in Brazil.
Biotest’s manufacturing facilities are located in Dreieich, Germany at the company’s headquarters. Together with its contract partners, Biotest can process up to 1.3 million litres of blood plasma annually.
