CO2 generation

I'm just beginning a series of 13CO2 tracer experiments in asparagus, and am
having a bit of a technical glitch - the yield of CO2 I am generating from
bicarbonate is much less than expected, like 50-60%.  I am using excess 2M
lactic acid for the reaction, which is carried out under vacuum.

Can anyone help?
