The LC50 represents the mean response of the population. 3% of the population is included within ±1 standard deviation (SD) about the mean (or median). 2). 7% of the test population. Various mathematical devices have been used to straighten out the response curve so that this central portion of the curve can be examined in a standardised manner. The most commonly used transformation is the probit transformation where percentage mortality is plotted on a probability scale on the yaxis versus log chemical concentration on the x-axis (hence the logarithmic range of chemical concentrations used for the test).
