Beside this, what is a fold dilution?
A ten-fold dilution reduces the concentration of a solution or a suspension of virus by a factor of ten that is to one-tenth the original concentration. A series of ten-fold dilutions is described as ten-fold serial dilutions.
Beside above, what is a 5 fold serial dilution? “The dilution factor is 5" “It was a 5 fold dilution” “It was diluted 1/5" These all mean the same thing, that there is 1 volume part of sample and 4 volume parts of whatever liquid is being used to dilute the sample for a total of 5 volume parts. CALCULATING THE CONCENTRATION.
Likewise, people ask, what does a dilution factor of 2 mean?
When a concentrated solution is diluted, the dilution factor may be expressed as the ratio of the concentration of stock solution to the concentration of the diluted solution. As another example, a 2-fold dilution is the same as a dilution factor of 2.
How do you do a 10 fold serial dilution?
Making a 10 Fold Dilution The first step in making a serial dilution is to take a known volume (usually 1ml) of stock and place it into a known volume of distilled water (usually 9ml). This produces 10ml of the dilute solution. This dilute solution has 1ml of extract /10ml, producing a 10-fold dilution.
