Panasonic proudly introduces the new hygiene solution which was developed based on the standards of comfort, health, safety with careful consideration of the regional conditions. Based on the anti-bacterial technology using silver ions, the advanced hygiene technology BlueAg has been improved with a combination of blue light (in refrigerator) or UV rays (in washing machine) and silver ions helps to kill up to 99.99% of bacteria. Combining with new energy saving technology of TD inverter, Panasonic products will enrich the experience for Vietnamese consumers.

In refrigerator, the blue LED light activates the silver surface of the Ag filter to create OH (hydroxyl radicals). OH radicals then stick to bacterium and take the hydrogen away from them to form water and inhibit bacterium activity at the Ag filter. As a result, the fresh air is circulated helping to keep food fresh, retaining nutrients and flavor. BlueAg technology is integrated on Panasonic BV0 bottom freezer refrigerator model with premium glass doors and French Door CY0 model.

In addition, the hygiene water tank on Panasonic refrigerators has been improved in terms of design and material to enhance the antibacterial effect. It has a closed structure, made of antibacterial materials with a carbon filter inside that helps reduce unpleasant odors, ensuring that the water is always fresh and clean.

Besides, the newly launched refrigerators are also equipped with Panasonic leading food preservation technologies such as -3oC Prime Fresh freezing, wide fresh case, etc.

In front-load washing machine, BlueAg technology optimizes bactericidal efficiency by a combination of silver ions and UV rays – ultraviolet rays in the sunlight - without using hot water. Ag ions at the Ag device behind detergent tray will be injected into rinse water in the drum. The blue UV rays will activate the Ag ions to form OH radicals as same operation as in refrigerator to eliminate 99.99% of bacteria even when washing in cold water. Hence, it helps maximize protection for clothes, especially with perishable materials such as wool, silk as well as save time and power consumption.
