Detection of heartworm infection in dogs via PCR amplification and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry of nucleic acid extracts from whole blood samples

In the report “Detection of heartworm infection in dogs via PCR amplification and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry of nucleic acid extracts from whole blood samples” (Am J Vet Res 2012;73:854–859), Ranga Sampath's correct name is Rangarajan Sampath; the correct address for Biosciences Incorporated is 2251 Faraday Ave, Ste 150, Carlsbad, CA 92008; and the correct name for Ibis Biosciences Inc in footnote b is Ibis Biosciences Inc, an Abbott Co.

In the Materials and Methods section, the sentence “Because all reactions for a sample were run in the same 96-well RT-PCR plate, cycling conditions were used for both the RT-PCR and PCR procedures as previously described.14“ should read “Because RT-PCR and PCR reactions were run in the same 96-well plate, RT-PCR cycling conditions were used for all reactions as previously described.14
