Ensuring good quality is an integral component of medicine manufacture. The classical Ayurveda texts have prescribed methods for achieving this objective. Presently, the principles and tools of modern science are also profitably adapted for this purpose. The medicines produced at the three Factories of AVS go through rigorous quality checks at the Quality Assurance Department and the QA Department Cell keeping in-house standards for all the medicines. The QA Department is a modern laboratory where modern infrastructure and scientific skill are available for employing scientific testing methods. The QC Cell consists of physicians who check the classical organoleptic characteristics.
The QA Department is equipped to test the quality of both raw materials and finished products. For this purpose, the quality standard parameters and analytical procedures prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards and the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of the Government of India are accepted. The expertise available with the Centre for Medicinal Plants Research and the Herb Garden also helps in this activity. The raw materials, on arrival and on approval, are received and used for medicine production. Those items which fail the test are rejected.
In the case of finished products, the standard parameters and analytical procedures prescribed in the Pharmacopoeial Standards for Ayurvedic Formulations of the Government of India are made use of. The quality certificate issued from the QA Department forms a part of the Batch Manufacturing Record of each batch of medicine. This procedure is an inherent aspect of the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) followed in the production units.
The organoleptic characteristics of the finished products are ascertained by the expert physicians of the QC Cell.
Thus, the quality of the medicines produced by AVS is ensured by adopting a comprehensive approach comprising both classical and modern practices.
