Meerut Laboratories Ayush Mark for Unani Drugs Firm
Meerut: Drugs Laboratory, the leading manufacturing company for Unani medicine secured the Ayush Premium Mark on March 10 from the Quality Council of India. Proprietor Dr. Sirajuddin Ahmed informed the media that the Ayush Mark would help the company export its preparations as it guarantees compliance with safety and standard benchmarks. The Mark is granted to such manufacturers which do not use any metallic ingredients in their formulas.
Ahmed said though this Mark has been granted to nearly 15 Ayurvedic drug manufacturers, Drugs Laboratory was the first Unani drugs manufacturer to obtain it.
The company was incorporated in 1985 in Meerut, although the family of Mr. Ahmed’s ancestors had been practising Unani medicine for the last two centuries. His father Hakim Saifuddin Ahmed, a Padma Shree awardee, had been the first advisor to the Union Ministry of Health under the Unani health system category.
Ahmed said certain medicines manufactured by the Drugs Laboratory are also being prescribed by Allopathic practitioners for neurological ailments. He informed that around a dozen other preparations too are prescribed under Allopathic system. The Laboratory has come out with medicines in capsules, pills, strips and other modern formats which could be sold across the counter.
Ahmed said the scientists from the Laboratory were now working on certain formulations that may spare the patients of renal disorder of dialysis. Sugreen capsules (for Diabetes)e, Neurin (for insommnia and anxiety), B-Pure (Blood; purifier), Gynoherb (for painful irregular menses) are some of the formulations offered by the Laboratory on its website www.drugslaboratories.com. The company was adjudged for the Hakim Ajmal Khan Global Award in 2014.
