Code to construct df:

arrays = [[  'a',   'b',   'c',    'top',    'top', 'routine1', 'routine1', 'routine2'],
        [   '',    '',    '',     'OD',     'OD', 'result1',   'result2', 'result1'],
        [   '',    '',    '',     'wx',     'wy',        '',          '',        '']]

tuples = zip(*arrays)
tuples.sort()
index = MultiIndex.from_tuples(tuples)

df = DataFrame(randn(3,8), columns=index)
