Abstract: In recent years scientific validation and standardization of drug is essential for global acceptance. The aim is to do physicochemical and preliminary phytochemical analysis for kandaamalaga ilakam as per the pharmacopeia laboratory standards of Indian medicine. The drug prepared as per the method mentioned in the Siddha literature. Physicochemical evaluation; ash values, namely total ash, acid-insoluble ash, water-soluble ash, alcohol soluble extractive value, and loss on drying were determined. Phytochemical analysis has been shown that the presence of alkaloid, carbohydrates, glycosides, phenols, flavonoids, diterpenes, fat and fixed oil, quinines. TLC, HPTLC finger printing, Heavy metal analysis, Pesticide residues, Microbial load and specific pathogen contamination were studied as per the pharmacopeial laboratory standards of Indian medicine. The result is shown that the specified drug is containing various phytochemical and is free from microbial contamination and pesticide residues.
