Panasonic’s nanoe™ X helps you brave the new normal with the benefits of hydroxyl radicals proven to inhibit the novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed the way people regard health and hygiene. Maintaining good health and practicing excellent hygiene became the norm and a means for surviving this pandemic. Now more than ever, the quality of air that we breathe has become a great concern. This pandemic brought about changes to our lifestyle that has been a cause of anxiety and stress, making us crave the life we once had.

However, these changes are a must for us to ensure our safety and security in these times of uncertainty. How can we brave this new normal? Is there a way to safeguard our families and for us to truly feel safe at home?

About hydroxyl radicals technology

To fight an invisible threat, sometimes, it takes an invisible solution. We are talking about hydroxyl radical technology — a revolutionary discovery with the potential to emerge victorious in the fight against the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Hydroxyl radicals are naturally occurring highly reactive components found in our troposphere which are commonly known as nature’s ‘detergent’. This is due to their ability to inhibit pollutants, odour, and even viruses.

Panasonic Corporation has recently published a press release1 dated 31 July 2020 that announced the verification of the inhibitory effects of hydroxyl radicals contained in water (nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particle) on the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Hydroxyl radicals contained in water are particulate ions containing hydroxyl radicals that are generated by applying a high voltage to moisture in the air.

Panasonic Corporation through collaborations with Osaka Prefecture University has confirmed that the hydroxyl radicals contained in water have inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). This testing was carried out in a closed laboratory environment, and was not designed to access its efficacy in uncontrolled living spaces. It was verified that 99% of this virus was successfully inhibited in 3 hours.

Prior to this verification, Panasonic has been conducting research on hydroxyl radicals since 1997 and has received many verifications on its effectiveness to inhibit various types of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, allergens, and a wide range of coronaviruses. They are also able to break down PM2.5 components and has deodorizing effects.

Understanding nanoeTM X and hydroxyl radicals contained in water

nanoeTM X, the original ionizer to generate “nano-sized atomized water particles”, was developed by Panasonic. It is an electrostatic atomization technology that collects invisible moisture in the air and applies a high voltage to an electrode to produce hydroxyl radicals contained in water – hence the existence of hydroxyl radicals from nanoeTM X.

Generally, hydroxyl radicals in the air have a short life span and have difficulty in generating huge quantity of hydroxyl radicals while controlling ozone generation. Panasonic utilizes a unique technology that generates hydroxyl radicals contained in water that encompasses charged water particles to give it a longer life span, and that technology produces huge quantity of hydroxyl radicals while controlling ozone generation, making it safe and effective in inhibiting new viruses.

Hydroxyl radicals contained in water have a longer life span which enhances its ability to attach onto viruses, taking away hydrogen (H) from proteins that neutralizes viruses. In fact, “hydroxyl radicals contained in water” device is used in an enclosed 45 liter enclosed box, has been verified to be effective in inhibiting the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in 3 hours.

Panasonic air conditioners equipped with nanoeTM X contains 10 times more (about 4.8 trillion per second) hydroxyl radicals than nanoeTM. Thanks to the huge quantity of hydroxyl radicals contained in water, nanoeTM X can inhibit surface-level pollutants by penetrating deep into fabric materials and neutralizes pathogenic microorganism such as bacteria & viruses, mold, allergen, pollen, and hazardous substances, breaking down PM2.5 components.

Panasonic will continue to pursue the potential of hydroxyl radicals contained in water technology with the aim to create healthy indoor spaces and environments. This technology can help people brave the pandemic, and be more prepared to address possible risks associated with air pollutions such as pathogenic microorganisms.

Business establishments — restaurants, hospitals, offices, gyms, schools and more — will especially benefit from hydroxyl radical contained in water technology’s abilities and its capability to offer 24-hour air protection.

There’s no doubt that once people learn about the benefits of hydroxyl radical the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and potential future pandemics.
