OXYPLUS™ is the oxygenation membrane capillary suitable for long-term oxygenation.
As an integral asymmetric hollow fibre oxygenation membrane OXYPLUS combines the performance characteristics of OXYPHAN™ with a dense outer skin characterizing it as a diffusion membrane. The dense outer skin prevents the passing of liquids like blood plasma or water into the pores even during prolonged application and avoids direct contact of the blood with air or oxygen.
As the outer skin is very thin the membrane has excellent permeability for oxygen and carbon dioxide, the gas exchange performance is equivalent to that of the microporous membranes OXYPAN.
The production process of OXYPLUS uses TIPS technology. The membrane is made from Polymethylpentene (PMP).
