[Histonet] Levels and Recuts

From:"Patricia Karlisch"

Hello all,
   Can anyone reference a description for 'levels' vs 'recuts'.  We use
the terms to mean specific procedures in cutting.  Thus, RECUTS are
sections directly off the top of a previously cut block.  Levels are
'recuts'  but at different distances between sections.  Generally, when
we cut levels we toss the unwanted sections out.  In some cases the
unstained are kept. Does anyone in histology consider these to be
'routine' terms and is this defined in any textbook?   
    I appreciate your input on this rather basic question.
