Abstract: The interest in Ayurvedic drugs/ formulations has led to an increase in their demand leading to a decline in their quality, primarily due to lack of adequate regulations pertaining to herbal drugs. Standardization is an essential tool to obtain the desired effect of any drug/ formulations. But the herbal formulations which are being prepared using traditional methods may not have the desired quality and batch to batch consistency due to lack of modern pharmacopoeial standards. Four samples of Katphaladi Cũrna, procured from different Ayurvedic pharmacies, were subjected to physicochemical analysis, HPTLC fingerprinting and botanical characterization, and compared using authentic ingredients as reference. The studies suggest that these parameters may, together, be used for quality evaluation and standardization of compound formulations and maintaining their quality, purity and efficacy.
