If placing more than 1 section of the same level on a slide, I've always cut three slides. I've never had a pathologist who only wanted to see one level.

One of our pathologist has requested a change in the way we cut GI specimens.  We presently put three levels on one slide. Exp.  we face the block, cut a ribbon and take one section of that ribbon and catch on the slide. We then progress into the block and repeat the process until we have three levels on the slide.  The new suggestion is to simply face the block, create a ribbon, and take three to four section of that ribbon and that's it no more progression into the block.  The thinking is that the Pathologist will see what they need to in those levels, and if not they will call for "deepers". I have never cut like this and just wanted to hear some thoughts on this method.
