The original article [1] contains an error in Fig. 1 whereby sub-figures 1B, 1C & 1D contain the wrong scale on the x-axis. The correct sub-figures are located ahead in this Correction article and should be considered instead.

a Results of quantitative suspension test for chlorhexidine for LA-MRSA, HA-MRSA, CA-MRSA and reference MSSA. Different concentrations of chlorhexidine (CHX; 125 mg/L, 250 mg/L and 500 mg/L) were suspended to different MRSA strains and the MSSA reference strain at two different contact times (5 min and 30 min). LA-MRSA (beige), HA-MRSA (green), CA-MRSA (blue) and reference MSSA (purple). Error bars show 95% confidence intervals. Horizontal line at the value of the mean reduction factor of 5 indicates bactericidal threshold according to DIN EN 1040. b Results of quantitative suspension test for octinidine for LA-MRSA, HA-MRSA, CA-MRSA and reference MSSA. Different concentrations of octinidine (OCT; 50 mg/L, 75 mg/L and 100 mg/L) were suspended to different MRSA strains and the MSSA reference strain at two different contact times (5 min and 30 min). LA-MRSA (beige), HA-MRSA (green), CA-MRSA (blue) and reference MSSA (purple). Error bars show 95% confidence intervals. Horizontal line at the value of the mean reduction factor of 5 indicates bactericidal threshold according to DIN EN 1040. c Results of quantitative suspension test for polyhexanide for LA-MRSA, HA-MRSA, CA-MRSA and reference MSSA. Different concentrations of polyhexanide (PHMB; 5000 mg/L, 7500 mg/L and 10,000 mg/L) were suspended to different MRSA strains and the MSSA reference strain at two different contact times (5 min and 30 min). LA-MRSA (beige), HA-MRSA (green), CA-MRSA (blue) and reference MSSA (purple). Error bars show 95% confidence intervals. Horizontal line at the value of the mean reduction factor of 5 indicates bactericidal threshold according to DIN EN 1040. d Results of quantitative suspension test for PVP-iodine for LA-MRSA, HA-MRSA, CA-MRSA and reference MSSA. Different concentrations of PVP-iodine (PVP-I; 20 mg/L, 30 mg/L and 40 mg/L) were suspended to different MRSA strains and the MSSA reference strain at two different contact times (5 min and 30 min). LA-MRSA (beige), HA-MRSA (green), CA-MRSA (blue) and reference MSSA (purple). Error bars show 95% confidence intervals. Horizontal line at the value of the mean reduction factor of 5 indicates bactericidal threshold according to DIN EN 1040. e Results of quantitative suspension test for triclosan for LA-MRSA, HA-MRSA, CA-MRSA and reference MSSA. Different concentrations of triclosan (TCX; 250 mg/L, 500 mg/L and 1000 mg/L) were suspended to different MRSA strains and the MSSA reference strain at two different contact times (5 min and 30 min). LA-MRSA (beige), HA-MRSA (green), CA-MRSA (blue) and reference MSSA (purple). Error bars show 95% confidence intervals. Horizontal line at the value of the mean reduction factor of 5 indicates bactericidal threshold according to DIN EN 1040
