FLU/time to FLU/mg/min

... fluorescent in such a way that give RFU/mmole  of product (or any comparable unit). FLU = relative fluorescent unit. The substrate is labeled (non-radical) With a fluorescent molecule which once is cleaved the fluorescent intensity can by measured. Please can I get detailed answer? Cheers
