The analytical standards of two highly medicinal and frequently used oil preparations viz. Roughan-e-Amla and Roughan-e-Surkh have been established in order to maintain their quality, safety and efficacy while taken for a commercial preparation. The standardization is based on the pharmacopoeial parameters such as organoleptic features, physico-chemical validation, thin layer chromatography, estimation of microbial load, pesticide residue, aflatoxins and heavy metals of both these compound drugs. Accordingly, their standard operating procedure (SOP) are also developed.
