    I don't think it's concentration, I'm pretty sure it's dilution. It's a set of dilution of antibodies.

    Yeah, I get what you mean. I've spoken to my friend who's doing it too and apparently that's not right. But thanks for your help

    Well you can either plot it in concentration units, or if you're going to plot it as dilution factors, then there are no units.
