There was an error in the English abstract, which has been corrected as follows.

Before correction

Results: A total of 5,018 sets (1 set, 1 BACTEC Peds Plus and 1 BacT/Alert PF) were evaluated. Overall, the recovery proportions for BACTEC Peds Plus and BacT/Alert PF bottles were 57% (134/195) and 69% (112/195), respectively. There was a significant difference between the 0.38% contamination rate in BacT/ Alert PF bottles and the 0.16% contamination rate in BACTEC Peds Plus bottles (P=0.035). The average TTD for all microorganisms was significantly decreased for the BACTEC Peds Plus bottles (P=0.021), but was increased for Candida parapsilosis compared to the results for the BacT/Alert PF bottles (P=0.028).
