Description

CDISC has a unit (per 4mL)

the NLM UCUM validator at https://lhncbc.github.io/ucum-lhc/demo.html validates this just fine and it is valid.

But there is also unit "per 7.5mL" for that, I need UCUM /7.5mL

how to express decimal multipliers?

Since the dot was reserved for multiplication based on early ISO standards, you can use ratios. 75/10.mL. I know it's a bit clunky, but it works.

I should correct "2 mg per 7.5 mL" would be "2 mg/75.10/mL" or using parentheses "2 mg/(75/10.mL)"

7.5 mL is equal to 7500 nL. So 7500.nL might be easier? e.g.

2 mg/(7500.nL)
