Leica SP2600 ultramilling attachment

Ultramilling of dental specimens

Routine microtomy is sometimes not sufficient to produce the desired results of a sample for microscopic examination. Samples may be too hard or too fragile to section properly. The technique of milling with an ultramiller is a preferred technique commonly used to obtain high quality results of difficult to section materials.

The application report provides the details for working with a mineralized canine tooth as sample and provides insight on how the high quality results were obtained.
