Need help with a mouse injection dose
« on: 29/06/2015 17:05:33 »
We give mice an dose of a substance at 3.0mg/kg.  The compound comes in a 1g/1mL container.  We add 3ul of the compound to 10mL of saline and then inject this solution into mice at .1cc/gram body weight.

I cannot figure out how this math translates to 3.0mg/kg.  3ul in 10mL is .3mg/ml and isn't this 300mg/kg and not 3mg/kg.

Please help explain if you can

THANK YOU!
