The aim of this study is to improve the acceptability of Shivakshar Pachan Churna, across the world by developing certain quality control parameters and fingerprinting method according to WHO guidelines for traditional formulations. Two batches of Shivakshar Pachan Churna (SPC) were purchased from the market for standardization and to check uniformity in batches. All batches were physiochemically evaluated for Extractive value, Phyto-constituents, Moisture Content and Micromeritic parameters. In present communication Chromatographic TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography) was developed for the standardization of Shivakshar Pachan Churna an Ayurvedic formulation. Spectroscopic studies were carried out to develop the spectrum of the formulation and validated by Overlain and Linearity study (Beer`s law). We have developed a simple scheme for the standardization and authentication of Shivakshar Pachan Churna (SPC) an Ayurvedic formulation. The present study signifies the use of TLC, Spectroscopic Fingerprint profiles for deciding the identity, purity and strength of the Shivakshar Pachan Churna (SPC) an Ayurvedic formulation.
