Confusion with fempto to nano Amps conversion in the video: Noise of an Instrumentation Amplifier

Video Link:

At the 3:20 timemark, discussion is made converting femto to nano Amps.  Seeing the femptoAmp value of 100, and the conversion to nanoAmps of 0.1.

Please correct me if I am wrong, as my SI units come from a Chemistry background, but isnt' Fempto:10^ -15    and Nano: 10^ -9  ?

If the above is correct, wouldn't the conversion of 100 femptoAmps = 0.0001 nanoAmps?   That would make the instrumentation amplifier calculation even better for total noise!

Thank you for your help in understanding.
