Question Making up iron solutions



I need to add ferric citrate to a cell culture media to achieve a final molar concentration of iron of 10 micromolar. The molecular weight of the ferric citrate is 244.94, the chemical formula C6H5Fe1O7; how do I calculate how much ferric citrate to use to get an iron concentration (ie not ferric citrate) of 10 mcm?

Never mind - I just realized that one mole ferric citrate equals one mole iron!
