Abstract: Quality assurance of herbal medicine is an important factor and basic requirement for herbal drug industry and other drug development organization. Hinguvacādi Cūrna is one of the ancient, most commonly used Ayurvedic formulations. The herbomineral drug is made in combination of 20 plant ingredients and 4 mineral ingredients. The formulation is prescribed for the treatment of ādhmāna (flatulence with gargling sound), śūla (pain), pārśvaśūla (intercostals neuralgia and pleurodynia), and pāndu (anaemia). Due to lack of quality standards, there are batch-to-batch variations. In order to develop standards for the Cūrna, the study was undertaken. The ingredients were procured locally, identified; Cūrna was prepared in laboratory scale and analyzed. Two other samples of Cūrna were procured from different Ayurvedic drug manufacturers. These samples were subjected to physico-chemical analysis, TLC and HPTLC finger printing. The data evolved can be adopted for laying down the pharmacopoeial standards for Hinguvacādi Cūrna.
