Nawah Scientific, Egypt’s fastest-growing life science venture has announced the soft launch of its Jordanian operations.
“With a very vibrant and strong scientific ecosystem, Jordan was the must-go option for Nawah” Nawah’s founder Dr. Omar Sakr commented. “Despite the relatively smaller size of Jordan to other MENA countries, Jordanian scientists are way ahead of others on so many fronts, and Jordanian universities are the cornerstone behind this significant impact. Yet, there is much more to achieve and Nawah is coming to Jordan to help make this happen.” This is not Nawah’s first time doing business in Jordan. In fact, collaboration with Jordanian universities and scientists has been established since 2018 remotely through Nawah’s hub in Cairo.
With a clear mission to “Empower Science in MENA & Africa”, Nawah has introduced a brand-new business model to the region, bringing the power of the digital era to the capable hands of scientists.“Scientists’ role is to think, design the experiments, and interpret results, we do the rest of technical work for them at Nawah” commented Prof. Ali El-Halawany, Chief Scientific Officer at Nawah.
Here is how it works: Nawah’s online platform receives experiments requests, a courier collects samples for analysis, Nawah’s scientists carry needed tests and return results online. By this, Nawah enables scientists to do higher-quality research regardless of their location and owned lab facilities.
Nawah’s services directly benefit a number of industries. Nawah has become an essential component of Egypt’s pharmaceutical industry in recent years, with hundreds of samples streaming in for analysis, routine checks, or formulations that need to be improved by the Nawah pharmaceutical formulation team. The food industry ranks in second, with a huge need for ingredient analysis and an increasing requirement to ensure food safety. In the near future, Nawah intends to expand its service offerings to include the agriculture, chemical, and oil industries.
