Cyton Biosciences Ltd was established as an independent, privately owned, consultancy service in 1997, based in Bristol, in the South West of England. From the outset, Cyton identified a need in the marketplace for a service provider, dedicated to European regulatory affairs and multi-disciplinary product development, specifically for the animal health industry. Along the way Cyton achieved the notable milestone of winning the coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise (International Trade) in 2003 –reflecting the global nature of the rapidly growing business.
In 2010, Cyton was strategically purchased by knoell to complete the range of scientific and regulatory services provided by the group (www.knoell.com). Cyton remains independent and privately owned but has increased capability as a member of the globally expanding knoell group.
2018 saw the establishment of Cyton AH GmbH, a new office in Mannheim, Germany which ensures continuity of all services following the withdrawal of the UK from the EU (www.cyton.com/brexit).
