Dilute to a working concentration

dilution

Best Answer mdfenko, 06 October 2014 - 03:44 AM

Hi,

 

not sure of it is the right place but..

 

For some reason I just cannot wrap my head around it.

 

I've calculated that I need 0,15 ul of a reagent to be added in 150 ul of DMEM to get a c2=0,1 ug/ml.

 

(0,1 ug/ml x 1,5 ml) / 1000 ug/ml = 0,00015 ml = 0,15 ul.

c2                 v2           c1                   v1

 

 

 

However, I want to dilute this to a working concentration, e.g. 1:100 to get v1 to 15 ul.

 

 

How to practically do this?

 

And will it not affect the end concentration (c2)?

 

 

Thanks

 

 

add 1 ul of the stock to 99 ul of diluent.

 

the only variable affected by changing c1 is v1, which is what you wanted.
