These drugs have a multi dimension effect like Broad-spectrum antibiotics. The Rasaushadies mentioned in Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia should be analysed for physical & chemical properties to confirm purity & safety before administration in human beings. Hence it become obligatory to adopt modern analytical methodology for better understanding and interpretation of physio-chemical changes occurred during the process. SKR was analysed on the following parameter Organoleptic parameter, Physiochemical analysis, Advanced physiochemical analysis. SKR sample was tested for antimicrobial activity against standard strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia and Streptococcus pneumonia. The prepared Shwasakasari Rasa was studied for their MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration & the zone of inhibition. The prepared drug was compared with Azithromycin (standard drug) of macrolide group to evaluate its antimicrobial efficacy. These tests was conducted in, S.R Labs & Research Centre, Jaipur.
