Erratum to: A round robin approach to the analysis of bisphenol a (BPA) in human blood samples

The Original Article was published on 01 April 2014

After publication of this work [1], we noted errors in grant funding acknowledged. NIEHS R01 HD31544 is an incorrect number and should be replaced with NIEHS R01 ES013527; NIEHS 1P01 ES02284401 contains a typo and should be changed to NIEHS P01 ES022841. Finally, USEPA P20 STAR RD83467801 and RD 83543601 are inconsistent with grant numbers listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s database. The correct numbers are USEPA P20 STAR R834678 and USEPA R835433.

The corrected Acknowledgements have been included in full in this erratum.
