Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I need to use insulin syringes 50 unit/U-100 insulin for allergy antigen.
I need to take 0.10 cc of antigen. The syringe is marked off by each 5 units. How does a unit convert to a cc? Thanks

U-100 insulin has a strength of 100 units per cc or milliliter(they are the same thing). The syringe is marked directly in units, so 1 mL = 100 units. Since you need 0.1 mL, you need
0.1 mL x 100 units/1 mL = 10 units.

CAUTION: A syringe for any other strength of insulin such as U-40 is different. A U-40 syring, for example, would be marked according to 40 units = 1 mL.
