Following publication of the original article [1], the authors noticed that in Table 1, two primer sequences (B-LF and H5-LF) should have been reverse complemented.

Table 1 Reverse transcriptional loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) primers for detection of influenza subtypes

The sequences to correct are below marked:

The correct sequences should be indicated as below:

No. Needs Correction: Corrected version
1. Table 1/ B (NA gene)/B-LF Sequence: GATGTCCGTGTAAGATACCAA CTACAGGCACATTCTATGGTT
Comment: Based on the reference in designing the forward loop (LF) primer: LF 5′-AACCATAGAATGTGCCTGTAG-3′ (Figure 1, page 4), this identified sequence should have been reverse complemented however inadvertently the submitted sequence for the mentioned B-LF primer was only reversed.
2. Table 1/ A/H5 (HA gene)/ H5-LF Sequence: CTACCAACCATACCCATGG GGTACCCATACCAACCATC
Comment: Based on the reference in designing the forward loop (LF) primer: LF 5′–GATGGTTGGTATGGGTACC-3′ (Figure 1, page 4), this identified sequence should have been reverse complemented however inadvertently the submitted sequence for the mentioned H5-LF primer was only reversed.
