In ancient days, Physicians having the comprehensive knowledge of Bhaishajya Kalpana, used to prepare the drugs themselves to treat their patients. So there was no doubt in obtaining genuine drug with desired therapeutic effect. But in recent years, the growing population and their life style, industrialization etc have forced physicians to depend on market preparations. As such we find the necessity of standardization of these preparations. The quality assessments of a drug, which is a chemical irrespective of the system is possible by 'Thin Layer Chromatographic technique' using known Chemical constituents as reference standards. A herbal preparation 'Kutajarishta', has been standardized by using this technique and the significance of the findings is discussed.
