I am not an expert but I think it is  much more sensitive/refined test that picks up levels more accurately .. there is a post I posted with similar ? about a month ago .. I have to go offline but if you have a moment do a search for ChitChatNine and maybe it will come up .. somebody answered the ? with much more details!

Sorry you have conflict b/t docs .. I HATE THAT!!!!!!!!
