The disintegration rates of35S and45Ca samples were determined by the modified integral counting method, which extrapolates the integral count rate to the zero detection threshold of a liquid scintillation spectrometer. The agreement between the extrapolated value and the standardized disintegration rate of the sample is very satisfactory.
