nanoe™ Technology

nanoeTM Technology is Panasonic’s unique technology, which involves its special expertise at the nanometer level. It deodorises, inhibits the growth of bacteria, and viruses, and is effective in dust removal for a fresher, cleaner indoor environment.

“nanoeTM Technology” is a general term that refers to one, two, or all of three different types of nanoeTM devices (nanoeTM X, nanoeTM, and nanoe-G) either separately or in any combination.

The Origin Of The Name nanoeTM

The name comes from a combination of “nano” from “nano-technology” and “e” from the word “electric.”

1nm is one billionth of one metre. If the size of the Earth were 1m, 1nm would be about the same size as a US dime.

The size of “nanoeTM” particles is 5-20nm. These small particles have a big effect.

The Effects of nanoe™ Technology Have Been Recognised By Experts In Different Fields

Recommended for use in facilities such as medical institutions where greater cleanliness is required. 

Osaka Prefecture University Rinku Campus

Professor Masafumi Mukamoto

Osaka Prefecture University, Veterinary Infectious Disease Studies

Various types of moulds enter houses along with people and air. Even if preventive action is taken in our everyday lives, it is often very difficult to inhibit the growth of mould, especially in humid environments. With nanoeTM X, we have experimental results*1 that show we can inhibit the growth of the types of mould commonly found in various places in the house. As nanoeTM X is also capable of inhibiting invisible bacteria and viruses that exist in our living environment, we can expect it will deliver a clean environment. I recommend that equipment incorporating nanoeTM X technology be placed in buildings where cleanliness is required, such as in schools, childcare facilities and medical institutions.**

Hope for the creation of more comfortable spaces for those who have problems with asthma or atopic dermatitis

Azabu University

Professor Masahiro Sakaguchi

Azabu University School of Veterinary, Medicine Department of Veterinary Medicine

We have experimental results that show nanoeTM X is capable of inhibiting allergens that could induce asthma or atopy. Recently asthma patients are on the increase,*2 and it is important to take precautions against the allergens that we inadvertently inhale in our daily lives. As nanoeTM X is effective in inhibiting invisible allergens, we can expect it will create a comfortable environment for people who suffer from asthma and atopy. As the safety of nanoeTM X has also been verified, nanoeTM X gives peace of mind to families with small children.**

Experimental results show that nanoeTM X is effective in inhibiting the growth of the following types of mould commonly found in homes: Cladosporium, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Alternaria, Fusarium, Eurotium, Mucor, and Stachybotrys.

Deodorisation effect varies according to the environment (temperature and humidity), operation time, odour, and fabric types. It does not eliminate toxic substances in cigarettes (carbon monoxide, etc.). Odours that are continuously generated (e.g., building material odours and pet odours) are not completely eliminated. Results may vary based on usage, and seasonal and environmental variables (temperature and humidity). nanoeTM X and nanoeTM inhibit activity or growth of viruses, but do not prevent infection.
Individual results may vary based on usage, and seasonal and environmental variables (temperature and humidity).
