Digitalization helps create Panasonic’s COVID-fighting aircon


    Extensive research, the use of computer simulation and digitalization helped create the filtration system “nanoe X” which has proven to have inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). This was certified by the a global contract research organization Texcell.

    Panasonic Air Conditioners using the breakthrough nanoe X Technology has an inhibitory effect on the COVID-19 virus of up to 91.4 percent in the space of 6.7 square meters within a period of 8 hours.

    In September 2020, Panasonic, in collaboration with Texcell, also verified the benefits of hydroxyl radicals on the novel coronavirus in a small test space of 45L using the nanoe X generator. The use of big data in compiling test results from several subject cases, which recently included the COVID-19 virus showed that in a closed laboratory environment the inhibitory effect was very successful.

    Panasonic just last week launched in a virtual media conference its line up home and commercial used airconditioners fitted with the Nanoe X technology and announced that it will be soon available for most of its line-up as its way of contributing to the fight against COVID-19.

    About nanoe X Technology

    nanoe X is a technology unique to Panasonic that collects invisible moisture in the air and applies a high voltage to it to produce “hydroxyl radicals contained in water”. Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of pollutants such as bacteria and viruses. They are characterised by being strongly oxidative and highly reactive, but normally have a short life span. Contained in tiny water particles, nanoe X has a long lifespan and can spread over long distances. It has an inhibitory effect on both airborne and adhered substances.

    Safer spaces are a must

    With the threat of the novel coronavirus continuously looming and with vaccines not yet massively distributed or administered locally, Filipinos continue to struggle with safer breathing spaces and to ensure healthier home and work environments for loved ones and colleagues.

    With this study update, one thing is assured: Filipinos can get 24-hour cleaner and safer air indoors, with the presence of Panasonic Air Conditioners in homes, schools, offices, and businesses. In fact, in 24 hours, Panasonic Air Conditioners with nanoe X Technology have an inhibition rate of 99.7 percent on the novel coronavirus, also tested in a 6.7 cubic meter space.

    Apart from its Split-type Air Conditioners with nanoe X Technology, Panasonic also offers a portable solution for the Filipino consumers, the Portable nanoe X Generator. The small device is also equipped with nanoe X Technology that’s proven to inhibit harmful air pollutants and viruses.

    The plight for A Better Life, A Better World continues

    Panasonic has been researching on nanoe Technology over the past 20 years since 1997 and has verified its effectiveness in a variety of areas, including inhibiting pathogenic microorganism (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) and allergens, breaking down PM 2.5 components that have adverse effects on the human body.

    Panasonic will continue to pursue the potential of nanoe X Technology to address possible risks associated with air pollution such as new pathogenic microorganisms, to create healthy environments and A Better Life, A Better World for people around the world.
