It's my pleasure to present before you the 3 rd issue of IJPM. I'm greatly thankful to all my associate editors, editorial board members and referees for their constant support and efforts in rapid processing of articles.

Technology is constantly changing and newer advancements are being made to make it more successful with lesser harm to the technologists and researchers and that too without compromising the results. New techniques are constantly developed to make our results more accurate, sensitive and specific for diagnosing a disease. This issue contains three technology based articles.

Formalin and xylene were considered to be an indispensable part of study of morbid anatomy and histopathology until last decade, but with reports of toxic effects of xylene and formalin in last few years, it has become important to find out the alternatives of these two solutions. Aydin et al. in their study in this issue have compared the use of various commercially available fixatives with formalin and xylene and have nicely demonstrated the results of histology, histochemistry and immunohistochemistry.

Appannanavar et al. in their article have demonstrated the use of commercially available boric acid vials for culture of urine samples that may prevent the contamination during the collection and transport and thus reduce the false positivity of this procedure.

Palani et al. have documented the new ELISA based method for detection of IgM antibodies against Flavivirus serotypes that may lead to more accurate diagnosis of diseases like Dengue and Japanese encephalitis.

I once again request to the authors to submit more of original research work than case reports and/or letters to improve the status of the journal.

With best wishes,
