### Calculations help

Hi i was wondering if you can help me i have a total volume of 400ul. I have a reagent that is 100ng/ml in 20ug/ml stock. I was wondering what is the volume of the reagent i need to add to the 400ul. Can you also show me the calculations

use the simplest formula ever c1V1 = c2V2

the stock is 20 ug/ml and final conc. should be 100 ng/ml, right? So, c1 = 100 ng/ml; V1 = 400 ul; c2 = 20 ug/ml and V2 you calculate

Otherwise you can think, that you need to dilute it 20 000/100 = 200-times, so the volume must be 200-times smaller i.e. 400/200 = 2 ul

50/500= ? That is what 500x mean, divide your final volume by the concentration factor (here 500) and you know how much to use.
