Evaluation of the Waters MassTrak LC-MS/MS Assay for Tacrolimus and a Comparison to the Abbott Architect Immunoassay
There are errors that were placed by the editorial office in the manuscript “Evaluation of the Waters MassTrak LC-MS/MS Assay for Tacrolimus and a Comparison to the Abbott Architect Immunoassay” after our original submission. We did not catch these errors when reviewing the proofs. In the results sections, the following sentence is incorrect “The mean concentration (nanograms per milliliter) and coefficient of variation for low, mid, and high patient pools were 0.6% +/− 19.9%, 16.0 % ± 5.4 %, and 31.2% ± 5.8 %, respectively”. The correct sentence is “The mean concentration and coefficient of variation for the low, mid, and high patient pools were; 0.6 ng/mL ± 19.9 %, 16.0 ng/mL ± 5.4 %, and 31.2 ng/mL ± 5.8 %, respectively.” These errors occurred in the Abstract, Results section on page 300, in the Accuracy and Precision section on page 302 and in the Conclusions section on page 303.
Example of the error:
Thank you for correcting these errors.
