“Product” and “Units of Product”

I was reminded today how the word product can be a nuisance when drafting, for example, a license agreement providing for a royalty based on products sold. Product can be used to refer to a product line, with its own SKU, or it can mean individual samples of a product line. I use the defined term the Product for the former meaning and refer to units of the Product for the latter. Anyone have any better idea?
