each tick on the slin pin is 20mcg. you could dilute the rest of the dart with BW if you wanted. I never diluted it with anything. I just shot the igf/ba solution IM.

1cc = 1ml
Thus 1ml = 100units = 1000mcg of LR3
So 1 unit is 10mcg...5 units is 50mcg.
The best way to measuer is to buy 1/2cc (50iu) or 1/3cc (33iu) insulin syringes. They have each unit on the syringe. Plus they are "larger" (more ticks) than the 100iu syringe. While the 100iu count by twos. Plus its a whole lot harder on a 100iu syringe... I personally use 50iu with no problem.
And remember to load BW, then load the LR3. That way you push all of the LR3 out
Ex draw 40ius of BW, then draw 4 more IUs of LR3 to have a total of 44ius.. That means that you have 40mcg of LR3 in the syringe...
Hope that was clear enough
