Talk about the nerd calling the dork black, or something to that effect! As to the measurements, I have only ever seen references to molarity with chemical concentrations, not with any biologics. As cosmik debris said usually the concentrations are expressed in mg/ml,ng/ml, etc....When we get a TITER (hee-hee) on antibodies we usually express it as mg/ml.
And also remember most people here don't do metric so don't know the tera giga mega etc. I've heard people I know bitch about the metric system and I just roll my eyes, having to use it. I think the metric system is just too rational for people here. :eyes:
