Rasoushadhi (Metallic medicine) being most efficacious drug in Ayurveda is known for its minute dosage and quick action. Rasasindura is a organo-metallic compound widely utilized by clinicians in infectious diseases but lack of preclinical data has been impediment for its wide acceptance. Hence study was planned to assess in vitro antimicrobial potential of Shadguna Rasasindura (SRS). Four gram-ve, four gram+ve and three fungal strains were studied for Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Zone of Inhibition (ZOI) against standard drugs and test drugs. Test drug SRS showed moderate zone of inhibition when compared to standard drugs in all the bacterial and fungal strains taken for study, however test drug was not active at 5mg concentration in all the experiments. MIC was observed at either 250 or 500 mg concentration but not in lower.
