  • CPCSEA approved animal house facility for breeding and conducting experiments using laboratory animals
  • Public testing laboratory recognized by the Department of AYUSH.
  • The research team has secured 15 patents and has over 100 publications in national and international peer-reviewed journals.
  • Standardized over 100 different in vitro bio-assays and isolated, purified and characterized more than 200 phytocompounds from different medicinal plants for use as reference substances.
  • Contributed several analytical monographs on Indian Medicinal plants to the Indian Pharmacopoeia, The Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India and the United States Pharmacopoeia.
  • Developed scientifically validated human health products for various health indications such as joint, brain, gut, respiration etc.

The Phytochemistry laboratory develops commercially viable processes for the optimum extraction of medicinal plants where active constituents (markers) are known. The plant extracts generated thereof are standardized to contain known amount(s) of biologically active constituent(s). For plants where active / markers are not known, bioactivity guided fractionations are undertaken and active / bio-markers are isolated for the purpose of standardization. Chromatographic techniques like column, flash, MPLC, Preparative HPLC are employed for isolating constituents. The isolated single chemical entities are thoroughly characterized using the conventional spectroscopic (UV, IR, NMR & Mass spectroscopy) and chromatographic techniques.

Areas of competence

Identification of crude drugs using pharmacognostic techniques:

  • Isolation of markers for standardization of herbal products.
  • Bioactivity guided fractionations of herbs to isolate their bio-active compounds.
  • Development of extraction procedures for medicinal plants.
  • Isolation of phytochemicals of high purity for use as chromatographic reference standards.

In the discovery cycle, for the predictions of the effects that a drug will display, measurement of its specific functional response induced in a biological system ‘a bioassay’ is required. A bioassay is thus an essential tool for research and development. Bioassays based on the in vitro responses of enzymes or stable cell lines are commonly the assay systems of choice for this purpose. These bio-assays are rapid, reproducible, economical, sample hungry.

We have standardized and routinely perform more than 125 in-vitro assays relevant to selection and optimization of new drug candidates using specialized assay technologies based on different detection modes like Absorbance (colorimetric, ELISA), Luminescence and Fluorescence (Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence etc) in 96 and 384 well formats. The simple, rapid and cost-effective nature of bioassays facilitates screening of a large number of samples. Plants effective in in-vitro assays are developed into prototypes, which ultimately get tested in in-vivo assays.

Apart from new product development, bio-assays can be effectively be used for screening campaigns, bio-activity guided fractionation, compatibility studies, and stability studies.

Areas of competence

  • Development of in-vitro pharmacological methods for drug evaluation.
  • Biological standardization of herbal products.
  • Application of bioassay methods to stability testing and testing combinational effect of herbal extracts.

As a manufacturer of herbal products, we consume more than 500 tones of crude drug / annum. This requirement of crude drugs is almost wholly fulfilled by collections from the wild / forests. But it is not possible to derive all this material from the wild, because the population of wild medicinal plants is growing thinner day by day due to over exploitation and indiscriminate deforestation. Moreover, because of insufficient raw material ( poor availability ), the price of material shoots up. These are thus valid reasons for cultivating medicinal plants.

We undertake Contract Farming of selected Indian medicinal plants through interested farmers and offer cent percent buy back. Our agriculture farming is stipulated under strictly defined conditions as are specific for each plant. We provide the planting material and complete cultivation plan to farmers and to supervise the proper implementation of plan we have groomed a team of Agriculture Graduates. Our agronomy team has covered approximately 1500 acres of land under contract farming in South India through buy back agreements.

Through contract farming we have done good R&D work to formulate Good Agricultural Practices, which includes proper selection and identification, propagation methods, cultivation techniques, harvesting, step-wise quality control of raw material up to processing stage, post-harvest treatment, storage and safety.

We provide buy-back guarantee to farmers who can grow medicinal plants of our interest
