What is a triple screen?

Hi. I'm living in Germany and this is my first pregnancy, so I don't know about all of the terminology. I had a test done yesterday where they do an ultrasound and measure the baby in different places and then take some of my blood and do some magical calculation which gives me the statistical analysis of my chances of having a baby with Trisomy 21 (Down's) or Trisomy 13/18. Is this what a triple screen is?

Also what is a level 2 U/S? Thanks for your help. Sometimes I don't know what you ladies are talking about!
