Rasakarpura, a Nirgandha type of Kupipakva Rasayana, used to cure skin disease. Although various references of Rasakarpura preparation are described in different Rasa Shastra classics but for the present study the reference of Rasatarangini (6/65-71) was selected. Rasakarpura is prepared with Parada, concentrated sulphuric acid and Saindhava Lavana in the ratio of 1: 1΍ and approx 1΍ respectively by using Valuka Yantra in Classical method within 9 hours of heat treatment and in Mechanized method by using electric muffle furnace (EMF) within 12 hours of heat treatment. Analytical study was done to find out its major chemical constitutes i.e. mercuric chloride along with sodium, magnesium and calcium as trace elements for product standardization.
