Abstract: Most of the traditional systems of medicine are effective but they lack of standardization. So, there is a need to develop a standardization technique. Central Council of research in Ayurveda and Siddha has given preliminary guidelines for standardizing these conventional formulations. For the uniformity of batches in production of herbal formulations it is necessary to develop methods for evaluation. In the paper, attempt has been made to evaluate Amukkara choornam, a Siddha formulation. Four samples were procured from different manufacturers and were subjected to physiochemical screening, High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) finger printing, microscopic characterization was compared using authentic ingredients as reference. It was observed that all commercial samples matched exactly with that of authentic standards after performing the standardization.
