The peptide calculator is used to measure dosage and reconstitution for research peptides. Before using the calculator, however, it is recommended that you double check the math with 1/3ml, 50cc and 100 unit syringes. The dosage in each unit is measured using Micrograms, as well as a tick marks on an insulin syringe.
How peptides are measured using the calculator
The primary use of the peptide calculator, is simply to measure peptides. This is vital peptides are used to achieve certain goals. Without knowing the amount of peptide one is taking, it becomes easy to compromise one’s own goals, thus delaying expected results from using peptides. Here is what to consider while using the peptide calculator to measure peptides:
- Milliliter – measurements are done in milliliter and this refers to a volume measurement equivalent to 1/1000 of a liter. This unit is used when dealing with water and other liquids and it is equivalent to 1cc.
- Cubic Centimeter – this is also a volume measurement used in the peptide calculator. It is the volume used when dealing with syringes and 1cc will hold 1 milliliter of water.
- IU – this is the international unit, and it is used to measure the activity of a number of drugs and vitamins. For every substance that uses this unit, there exists an international agreement that outlines the biological effects expected from the substance when 1UI of the substance is used. As such, the measurement is not based on the weight or volume of substances, but rather on their effects.
- Mg – this is a weight measurement, and it is 1/1000 of a kilogram.
When you need to use the peptide calculator, however, you don’t need to concern yourself with the above. All you have to do is simply punch in your figures in the calculator for it to do its calculations, and give you back the results. But for your general knowledge, it is still advisable to know some of the units used by the calculator.
