Re: [Histonet] Deeper vs Levels

From:"Robyn Vazquez"

Deepers and levels are one in the same, a recut on the other hand is
"right off the top".  Basically, you don't go into the block at all. 
Or, maybe different parts of the country call it different names...just
my two cents.

Stepping out on a limb, here...
 in my mind, "deeper" is just what the doc said, it's a recut. 
on the other hand, implies a specified depth ... 10 um, 15 um,
per level.  I would think that whatever depth defines a "level" would
part of the way things are done in the lab (there's a term I'm looking
for and it escapes me at the moment...grrr ... old age).

this is an interesting question, one I've never delt with before. 
that's my thinking on it, for what it's worth.
