A researcher at the University of Auckland in New Zealand used vegetable oils to extract penicillin G and lactic acid after fermentation. The researcher also used a hollow fiber membrane to separate a solvent from the host solution. "Carrier" molecules were also added to the solvent. These molecules attached to the target molecules and taken quickly across the membrane. Once across, the carrier molecules are separated from the target molecules.
