I got my blood work done and my free testosterone was 24.76 pg/mL (the reference ranges given by the lab were 4.5 - 42 pg/mL).
I asked the lab if the units they gave me result in were correct and they confirmed that they were. I also asked them what test they used and it was the ELISA (http://www.rapidtest.com/index.php?i=Steroid-ELISA-kits&id=69&cat=14).
I wanted to convert the result to ng/dL and according to this site:
24.76 pg/mL is equal to 2476 ng/dL.
I don’t understand how that can be right.
1 pg = 0.001 ng
So that gives 0.02476 ng/mL.
1 mL = 0.01 dL
So that comes to 2.476 ng/dL.
Can someone please explain where I’m going wrong?
