We have developed closed-system techniques for the equilibration of Os isotopes and for the calibration of Re and Os tracers using high-purity metals [1]. The results show reproducibility of ±0.5% for calibrations for Os using different chunks of the same high-purity Os metal produced by vacuum arc melting.
