Medications have been utilized from time immemorial all across the world for numerous ailments in various communities of the world to cure different disorders and thus its need and prominence is magnificently expanding. Quercus incana has been gone for the scientific observations to test its indicated conventional utilizations against different communicable diseases. The bacterial strains used in the study were E. coil. Xanthomonus maltophilia, Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aures, Clavibacter michiganmensis, Salmonella typhi and antifungal strain used was candida albicans. Ciprofloxacin and Coltrimazol were used as antibacterial and antifungal assays respectively. Various aspects of Quercus incana were examined against six bactericidal strains. Ethanol and water fractions were observed more powerful among the plants samples. The entire investigations resulted that the plants species activity against the examined bacterial and parasitic strains. In nutshell the results revealed that Quercus incana fruits have board antibacterial and antifungal potentials. These samples of the plants which have been selected as sample for the investigations viz. ethanol and water fractions were found more dynamic. In addition to this being the major samples the ethanol and water parts of these plants can be liable to column chromatography for the separation of more effective antimicrobial medications.
