Go down to where the Heading says Diagnostic Uses:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemoglobin

it even has the conversion for you to use: g/dL into mmole/L. just have to find out the volume of a red blood cell. Wow, found it for you:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythrocyte
look under the Heading Human Erythrocyte, and use the normal volume value to calculate it out.

Each red blood cell contains 200-300 million molecules of hemoglobin.
Hope this helps and isn't too late!

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
