Author(s): Vikrant Arya
Abstract: Microscopic analysis of a crude drug facilitate the researchers for appropriate identification of a drug and abolish adulteration and provide a basis for authentication of crude drug. The present investigation involves the plant drug Lens esculenta Moench. belonging to family Papilionaceae. It is cultivated as a pulse crop. Even though the plant has captured scientific emphasis recently, there is a need for standardization. Hence in present work the seed part of the plant is subjected to various microscopic assessments. In the microscopic studies different cell structure and arrangement were studied.
