We present a numerical fitting method for transmission data that outputs an equivalent sample composition. This output is used as input to a generalised efficiency transfer mode lbased on the EFFTRAN software integrated in a LIMS. The procedural concept allows choosing between efficiency transfer with a predefined sample composition or with an experimentally determined composition based on a transmission measurement.The method can be used for simultaneous quantification of low energy gamma emitters like 210Pb, 241Am, 234Th in typical environmental samples.
