Picomoles Per Liter (pmol/L)

Some medical tests report results in picomoles per liter (pmol/L).

  • A mole is an amount of a substance that contains a large number (6 followed by 23 zeros) of molecules or atoms. A picomole is one-trillionth of a mole.
  • A liter measures fluid volume. It is a little bigger than a quart.
