Carbonic Anhydrase Coatings

  • The limiting factor in CO2 elimination is physiological, since over 90% of CO2 in blood is carried as HCO3- (bicarbonate)

  • Carbonic anhydrase (CA) catalyzes the dehydration of HCO3- to CO2

  • Enhanced CO2 removal can be realized through CA coatings for Hollow Fiber Membranes
