Panasonic debuts a new air conditioner that inhibits allergens, bacteria, viruses, and even the novel coronavirus.

The ongoing pandemic, the new strains (Delta, Lambda, and the more recent one called Mu), and the quarantine restrictions mean that we’re at home more often. And while sanitizing and cleaning have become practically second nature for all of us, the possibility of airborne COVID-19 variants means that we should also start worrying about the very air we breathe.

Heeding the call for clean air, many brands have released air purifiers and cleaners. Even Panasonic Corporation has joined in, but with something multi-functional and much better: an air conditioner that keeps you cool and cleans the air, too!

Quality Air for Life

Years before the pandemic, Panasonic has been hard at work—innovating and refining a decade-long innovation called nanoe™ X technology. By collaborating with Osaka Prefecture University, Panasonic ran a test to see how effective its new technology was against the SARS-CoV-2 strain.

And it showed promising results! 99% of the virus was successfully inhibited in 3 hours in a 45L box through hydroxyl radicals contained in water (aka nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles).

Following these test results, Panasonic collaborated with Texcell (a global contract research organization in Paris) to verify how effective the nanoe™ X technology is with the benefits of hydroxyl radicals. They used a similar test space and variables for this, and the results showed a 99.99% inhibition rate within 2 hours. Amazing!

nanoe™ X technology, Explained

nanoe™ X technology is technology that’s unique to Panasonic and it has been found to inhibit pathogenic microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and viruses, as well as allergens. But beyond that, tests and studies show that it works just as well on the novel coronavirus, too!

“nanoe™ X collects invisible moisture in the air and applies a high voltage to it to produce hydroxyl radicals contained in water,” a report from Panasonic cites. “Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of pollutants such as bacteria and viruses. They are characterized by being strongly oxidative and highly reactive, but normally have a short life span. [However, when] 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.”

Simply put, nanoe™ X technology stops pollutants and inhibits the novel coronavirus. That is, when it is paired with hydroxyl radicals, which are enclosed in water. And the result is cleaner air for a cleaner space.

Panasonic vs. Pandemic

But how does this translate to our day-to-day lives? Panasonic equips its air conditioners and other appliances with nanoe™ X technology. With about 4.8 trillion hydroxyl radicals per second, it deactivates surface-level pollutants by going deep into fabric materials. In addition, it inhibits pathogenic microorganisms, allergens, pollen, and hazardous substances.

The best part? These nanoe™ X-equipped air conditioners can provide 24-hour air protection in your home and in public spaces. These include restaurants, hospitals, offices, gyms, schools, and the like.

Currently, the Split-type Air Conditioners with nanoe™ X technology and the Portable nanoe™ X Generator are available in the local market. But this time, Panasonic now offers a new energy-saving model: the Panasonic Premium Inverter XU Series Window Type with nanoeTM X.

With this new inverter air conditioner, you’re treated to Panasonic’s trademark excellent cooling system. Additionally, it comes with the much-needed round-the-clock protection against the novel coronavirus, as well as other viruses and harmful pollutants.

“As a global citizen, Panasonic takes its purpose of caring for quality air to heart,” Masaru Toyota adds. “[We are] committed to the uninterrupted pursuit of the potential of nanoe™ X technology towards fulfilling its vision of A Better Life, A Better World.”
