Medication concentration display in Omnicell

Hi all -
For those centers that have Omnicell workstations in the OR, how do you display the medication concentration on the labels that print upon removal? Ideally we'd like to see the the quantity per total volume, followed in close proximity by quantity per milliliter enclosed by parentheses (quantity/mL). However, we have character and configuration limitations. Anesthesiology would prefer the display ox x mg/ml rather than the quantity per total volume.
