Sorry for not making myself clear

As Chris said, published LD50 values are only a guide to the acute toxicity
of a substance. Many variables (including technical as well as biological)
will act upon the final result.

The best methodology would be to carry out an LD50 in your own lab. That
way the result will be properly controlled for your own set of conditions.

Good luck.
