Hassab Labs is one of the fastest growing medical labs in Egypt. It was founded by Dr Amina Hassab in 1991 and revitalised in 2010 with the invitation of her son-in-law, Mohamed Azab, to act as CEO. Hassab Labs conducts almost a million medical tests per year with the highest international standards for individuals, health professionals and medical institutes throughout different cities in Egypt.
From 2010 to 2012, the business evolved into a shareholding company and expanded from three to 22 labs in different cities throughout Egypt. Hassab Labs doubled their revenues and the number of employees grew to more than 300 (55% female). The aggressive expansion plan will boost operations through the opening of 50 additional branches over the next five years in Egypt and the region.
Today, the company enjoys a strong reputation for accurate results, fast turnaround, and competitive pricing. It is the first medical laboratory accredited by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) in Egypt. Hassab Labs has the ability to play a key role in shaping an industry that is extremely underserved in Egypt and the region, but is expected to grow tremendously over the next 20 years. The company serves as an important role model for the many family owned businesses in the region.
