The crude drug (Patha) was formulated in to an asava using conventional anaerobic fermentation process for about 90 days. Apart from some traditional methods of standardization of asava, a new approach was made to select about thirteen numbers of physical, physic-chemical including organoleptic and primary organic analysis and were attempted with the asava to obtain a reproducible and consistent results and the same were recorded.
