AMU: New Quality Control Lab at Dawakhana Tibbiya College

Experts in the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) are set to prove that harnessing the potential of traditional medicine would be a game changer when quality control no more remains a challenge—and to realize this objective, a new state-of-art Quality Control Lab was inaugurated on November 30 at the Dawakhana Tibbiya College where Unani medicines will now be produced with the most advanced quality control techniques and suitable standards involving sensory and analytical inspections.

Inaugurating the Quality Control Lab, AMU Registrar, Mr Mohammad Imran (IPS) stressed: “Since the need for traditional medicinal material and product is constantly increasing, it is imperative that we further raise the bar of Unani medicine quality. It is essential that the quality of the traditional medicines is being controlled as that of the chemically synthesized medicines”.

He took a tour of the manufacturing facility at the Dawakhana Tibbiya College and shared ideas on how new techniques can be used as quality control tools for Unani medicines.

Mr Imran also suggested measures for making the Unani production more competitive.

“We intend to develop this Quality Control Lab into a full-fledged research and development centre for the safety standardization, efficacy, and potency of Unani medicines”, said Prof Salma Ahmed (Member-in-Charge, Dawakhana Tibbiya College).

Prof Salma with Mr Taufeeq Ahmad (Officiating General Manager, Dawakhana Tibbiya College) and Assistant Managers Mohd Shariq Azam and Hakeem Abdullah accompanied Mr Imran on the tour to the new lab and other facilities at the Dawakhana.
