Approximately two years ago, Canberra introduced ISOCS (InSitu Object Calibration System), which included the first commercially available mathematical efficiency calibration program for Ge detector calibrations. Over the past 2 years, many improvements have been made to make it suitable for the more demanding laboratory customer and application, resulting in LabSOCS. With this new software, a new round of validation tests to define the expected accuracy was started. The new round of tests will include data from each new detector in 8 different typical laboratory geometries. Results from these new tests will be summarized and presented.
