SHANGHAI — Drug maker Bristol-Myers Squibb is opening a new testing facility in China under collaboration with a local company there, Bristol said Monday.
WuXi PharmaTech will build, equip and operate the 25,000-sq.-ft. lab in Shanghai to store and test stability samples and perform other services for Bristol.
