Leica SP2600 Ultramiller Ultramilling Attachment for the Leica SM2500 Large Scale, Heavy duty Sectioning System
Quantitative Serial Sectioning Analysis
Journal of Microscopy, Vol. 201, Pt. 3, March 2001, pp. 388-394 describes a modification to the Leica Polycut with milling attachment that allows to take serial-sections and corresponding microscope images in a semi-automated manner. The serial sections are combined to give a three-dimensional representation of the sectioned area.

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.
