Founded in 2015, the life science tech startup aims to empower scientific research and scientists in Egypt as it provides a range of advanced research equipment.
Its premium service offering is provided via an online platform making it both accessible and affordable. As a multidisciplinary research centre, Nawah Scientific offers services for both medical and natural science.
How does it work
Users are able to access the online platform and submit experiment requests. Once received, Nawah Scientific’s online platform processes the request and sends a courier to collect samples for analysis. When collected, the team of experienced scientists at Nawah Scientific conduct the requested tests and submit the results online back to the user.
The unique service allows scientists to conduct higher-quality research regardless of location or existing lab facilities, it essentially allows scientists to take their research to the next level.
The life science tech startup has reportedly analysed over 50 000 samples from over 3000 clients in nine countries since inception.
Nawah Scientific has played a pivotal role in combating the spread of the virus in Egypt as it reportedly developed novel formulations for skin-friendly sanitisers.

“Business is always a struggle. There are always obstacles and competitors. There is never an open road, except the wide road that leads to failure. Every great success has always been achieved by fight, every winner has scars. The men who succeed are the efficient few –they are the few who have the ambition and will-power to develop themselves. So choose to be among the few today.”– Chris Kirubi, Centum Investment, Kenya
