reconstituting IGF-1 ?
I think I understand mixing the acidic acid but what do I do with the water? How much would I use or do I just mix the water after the peptide is dissolved? The kit Iam getting has 1000mcg of powder 2ml aa and 10ml ba water. What do I do to make it? I keep reading and reading different sites and I keep finding different anwsers. Its cofusing some make sense and some get to technical maybe iam just dumb. Help if anyone can thanks.
I don't think you should have posted this in the Home Brew section But I did take this from another board for you. Hope it helps.
I just want to know how to measure out 40mcg of IGF-1 in a slin syringe.
First off lets get some clarification on this:
Answers to the three most frequently asked questions:
How many micrograms (µg, ug or mcg) in a milligram (mg)?
1000 micrograms = 1 milligram, and 1000 milligrams = 1 gram.
How can I convert from international units (IU) to milligrams or micrograms?
Generally speaking, you can't. IU's measure the potency of a drug, not its mass or weight.
Here this article should clarify things which was wrote by Chaos of Chemone Research:
first remove the vacuum from the vial, by injecting air into it. when the vacuum is gone it will no longer pull the plunger down
you can use as much AA as you like. the original kits came with 1ml. most time when i drew it into a syringe, it was't even that much, which of course is a problem. chemone includes a little more than 2ml so if you want to use 1ml, fine, 2ml, fine. there will be enough.
i personally use 2ml because it is easier to measure later when you draw it into a syring.
after removing the vacuum SLOWLY add AA to the vial. try not to let the stream of aa hit the powder directly, try to let it run down the glass into the powder. when the aa is in gently swirl the vial until all is disolved. do not shake.
a 1ml syringe is marked like this llll10llll20llll30llll40llll50llll60...etc
a 1/2 ml syringe is like this llll5llll10llll15llll20llll25llll30
on a 1ml each line represents 2 units 2,4,6,8,10
on a 1/2 ml each line is 1 unit 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. this makes it easier to measure.
so if you use 1ml of aa, on a 1ml pin, each line is 20mcg. on a 1/2ml pin each line is 10mcg
if you use 2ml of aa, on a 1ml pin each line is 10mcg, on a 1/2 ml each line is 5mcg...the 5line is 25mcg, 10 line is 50mcg...etc
so you see that the easiest way to measure is using 2ml and a 1/2ml pin
your igf is stored in aa solution, nacl is added to dilute at the time of injection. draw twice as much nacl as igf. so if you draw igf to the ten line, draw nacl to the 30 line and you are ready to go.

Posts: 3,999 If that doesn't clear it up then basically if you have a 100iu Slin pin and you have 1GR IGF.
If you add 1ml of aqueous solution then the 4th line is 40mcg
If you added 2mls of aqueous then the 8th line is 40mcg.
