How to dilute serum glucose with saline solution

Sugars and salts are essential for the healthy functioning of our body. To get a better understanding of how our bodies work, scientists try to recreate the concentrations of essential sugars and salts in the blood, for understanding diseases such as diabetes, where blood sugar is not broken down properly. The easiest way to experiment is the dilution of serum glucose with a saline solution – salt and water. Serum glucose tends to be used in low concentrations to replicate your blood sugar levels.

Steps to follow:

1. Measure 9.9 ml of saline solution into the test tube, with the pipette.

2. Add 0.1 ml of serum glucose to the same test tube.

3. Seal the test tube with a stopper, and shake the tube for at least 10 seconds.

4. Wait for the liquid to settle. Serum glucose / saline dilution is 1: 100.
