Correction to: Effect of incubation duration, growth temperature, and abiotic surface type on cell surface properties, adhesion and pathogenicity of biofilm-detached Staphylococcus aureus cells

Correction to: AMB Expr (2017) 7:191 https://doi.org/10.1186/s13568-017-0492-0

Following publication of the original article (Khelissa et al. 2017), the authors reported that the legend for Fig. 3 contained an error. Instead of “Adhesion of planktonic and biofilm-detached Staphylococcus aureus cells on stainless steel and polycarbonate. Cell cultures were grown at 20, 30 and 37 °C, during 24 h (white square) and 48 h (white square). Planktonic cells adhesion on stainless steel (a) and polycarbonate (b). Adhesion of stainless steel-biofilm-detached-cells on stainless steel 24 (c) and polycarbonate-biofilm-detached-cells on polycarbonate (d)”, the legend should read “Adhesion of planktonic and biofilm-detached Staphylococcus aureus cells on stainless steel and polycarbonate. Cell cultures were grown at 20, 30 and 37 °C, during 24 h (black square) and 48 h (white square). Planktonic cells adhesion on stainless steel (a) and polycarbonate (b). Adhesion of stainless steel-biofilm-detached-cells on stainless steel 24 (c) and polycarbonate-biofilm-detached-cells on polycarbonate (d)”.

The original article has been corrected.
