After issuance of job card, the herb, deionized water and ethyl alcohol are issued from the respective stores against the unique batch/job numbers. The quantity of alcohol and deionized water (obtained from most modern reverse osmosis plant) are calculated from homoeopathic pharmacopoeias.
This mixture of herb, alcohol and deionized water are kept in maceration pans as per quality standards, percolation is also done where necessary. After lapse of defined period the liquid is separated from the solid and this solid herbaceous material is pressed through Hydraulic Press to obtain the liquid contained between the fibres of the herb. This liquid extract is then filtered through pouch filters and filter presses.
