What does this mean? Light emission (x10 6 ph s-1 cell-1)?

They refer to bioluminescence in dinoflagellate, I get the ph for photons, the rest talk about seconds and cells? How would you read it and how much light does that is?

I'm trying to establish a correspondence with light parameters.

Thank you ^^

    If s is seconds, then s^-1 (s to the minus 1 power) would mean "per second".

    Likewise cell^-1 means "per cell".

    It's like x10 6 ph/sec/cell
