Correction for ‘Fabrication and assessment of an electrospun polymeric microfiber-based platform under bulk flow conditions with rapid and efficient antigen capture’ by Carlton F. O. Hoy et al., Analyst, 2018, 143, 865–873.


In the Experimental section beginning on p. 866, one reagent (Triton X) was omitted and not mentioned the final version published. In the ‘Reagents & materials’ and ‘Microfiber mat fabrication’ sections on this page the opening sentence of each is therefore incorrect. The correct text is as follows:

[thin space (1/6-em)]

Reagents & materials

The reagents used in the electrospinning of the microfiber mat are pelletized PS (PS Japan) dissolved in a solution containing tetrahydrofuran (THF, Sigma-Aldrich), N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF, Sigma-Aldrich) and Triton X (Triton X-100, T8787, Sigma-Aldrich).

[thin space (1/6-em)]

Microfiber mat fabrication

Pre-pelletized PS at 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 vol%/vol% was dissolved into a solution of 1[thin space (1/6-em)]:[thin space (1/6-em)]1 THF/DMF and 2 w/v% Triton X.
