Hi ,  I basically need to make a 1 in 2 dilution of a solid material and i dont know how to do that.  The material is in powder form so i need to make it liquid so that i can use it for a microbiology test in the lab. So this is why i need to dilute it and i have decided to make a 1 in 2 dilution of it with sterile water. But I do not understand how much of the powder i will be putting in to how much water.

 

if i have 0.10 g  for example, how much would i need of this and how much of water to make a 1 in 2 dilution   ?     

 

Help needed quick

1 in 2 = 50% dilution which is usually 50g in 100 ml. So yeah as mdfenko said, 0.1 g in 0.2 ml


What's the fun in answering a question when you cannot question its answer?

A little bit of nitpicking here, but 0.1g to a total volume of 0.2ml, not "in" 0.2ml (it seems a bit like: adding 50ng in 0.2ml like you wrote it)

 

1 in 2 = 50% dilution which is usually 50g in 100 ml. So yeah as mdfenko said, 0.1 g in 0.2 ml

 


If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

Yes you're right, thank you. 100 mg in water quantum satis 200 ul. Better?
