We are a GI lab and I do 3 levels on each block, 3 sections on each slide

Is there is a standard used for small biopsy Microtomy?  I am wondering how other sites cut their biopsies (ie the number of sections per slide and the amount of roughing in between sections)?  I am also curious about the number of slides per biopsy.

Thanks for your help,
