    My advice; before investing a lot of time on this find out if the 
person really understands what they want. It may be a case of "if 5 
micron sections are good then 0.5 micron sections must be 10X as good." 
It could also be a typo. Years ago a colleague (with a Ph.D.) who should 
have known better came to me looking for some "NaH", not understanding 
that the protocol called for NaOH.
