The genetics lab is equipped with cutting edge instruments like the Miseq sequencer, illumina iScan and RT-PCR including all additional machinery. This means you can start and finish your entire experiments all from the comfort of our lab. We offer a range of tests from small procedures like DNA extraction up to sequencing entire genes or genomes. Whatever you want to do, we can offer tailored packages to fit your needs. Our packages mostly include the use of bench space, consumables, equipment, plastic ware and reagents all brought to you at reduced market prices. This is a strictly non-profit organization and revenues are considered donations that are partly used to fund further research in our unit.
We are a team of highly trained and skilled professionals from diverse scientific backgrounds, geneticists, microbiologists, bioinformaticians and pharmacists that come together to form this unit. As such, we have a strong understanding of genetics from several perspectives and you can consult us with your work. We can guide you in choosing the right package and experiment that best fits your work, and at additional cost, we can help you complete your lab work.
The illumina sequencer can support many panels such as cancer panels and costs vary based on the output, coverage needed and number of samples. Please contact us for further details.

The Proteomics Unit at Hospital 57357, the first proteomics laboratory in Egypt and the Middle East, is equipped with top-notch facilities and empowered with a fine selection of specialized scientists with solid experience.
The unit aims at empowering research by precise qualitative and quantitative protein identification using high-end state- of- art Proteomics technology. The unit offers several specialized and comprehensive services, solutions and packages. Their uniqueness stems from the fact that they are simply the only ones offering these services in Egypt. Costs include reagents, sample processing, manpower, instrument usage, data analysis and reporting.
The proteomics unit believes that innovation is a group endeavor. That is why it is collaborating with the top scientists in Egypt and worldwide. Their collaboration is expanding and they are always welcoming a powerful collaboration targeting high impacted scientific journals. Present collaborations include: Zewail city of science and technology, Zewail city of science and technology, Armed forces college of Medicine, Urology and nephrology center, Mansoura, Baylor College of Medicine, USA University of Rochester, USA, Niigata University, Japan, Fred Hutchinson cancer research center, Seattle and Baylor University, USA.
Services and Costs
We offer a unique service with different assay length and applications. Our uniqueness stems from the fact that we are simply the only ones offering these services in Egypt. Costs include reagents, sample processing, manpower, instrument usage, data analysis and reporting.
We work professionally according to world standards to ensure accurate, sensitive results. For all samples, we perform an efficient protein extraction using varieties of extraction buffers, quantification of proteins and appropriate protein reduction and alkylation prior to trypsinization. All samples are subjected to C18 desalting step to make sure purified peptides are going to our clean TripleTOF 5600+.
Data is searched by up to two tandem mass spectrometry protein identification algorithms, including X!Tandem, OMSSA, comet, tide, andromeda.
Label free quantification based on spectral abundance “NSAF or emPAI” or area under the curve “AUC” is provided free of charge.
Samples or groups of samples are compared, generating fold-change values for every measured protein.
