Panasonic has surpassed many electronic brands nominated for this category to win the award thanks to its unique and advanced antibacterial technologies applied in the Company’s modern refrigerators.
NanoeX – the active antibacterial technology applied for six door premium fridge – Suppressing 99.99% bacteria, mole, reducing pesticide by 2.8 times (after washing), and preventing odor
In 2018, Panasonic adapted the antibacterial and odor purification Nanoe-X technology from air conditioners to high-end refrigerators. Nanoe-X are nano-sized ion particles generated from moisture in the air with 4.8 trillion (-OH) radicals. These ion particles spread through the air inside refrigerator, reliably reach bacteria and viruses, allowing (-OH) radicals to transform virus proteins to deactivate and inhibit the growth of bacteria and virus in the air.
Especially, Nanoe-X is able to weaken bonds in pesticide on the surface of fruits and vegetables, allowing pesticides to be washed away easily with water, eliminating odors and 99.99% of mold, bacteria. Therefore, it is safe and hygienic for fridge users.
Blue Ag+ - for two and three door fridge - eliminate 99.99% of bacteria thanks to UV-A light and Ag+ ions
The Panasonic’s Made in Japan six door fridge reduces pesticide by 2.8 times and suppresses 99.99% of bacteria thanks to the exclusive antibacterial technology, namely Nanoe-X
Blue Ag+ generates a strong bacteria killer, OH radicals, through a reaction between silver Ag ions and UV-A light. The OH radicals work with hydrogen molecule of the bacteria to transform OH radicals into water and eliminate the bacteria.
The Blue Ag+ technology is utilized in the -3 Celsius degree soft freezing case, which makes this feature outstanding and unique for Panasonic’s fridges (PrimeFresh Blue Ag+ right soft freezing at -3 Celsius degree). PrimeFresh Blue Ag+ eliminates 99.99% bacteria, enabling food to be fresh for 7 days and can cook without defrosting . Another application of Blue Ag+ is found in the cold wash hygiene for bacteria elimination only in Panasonic washing machines.

Ag Clean – Anti-odor, anti-bacterial technology for several refrigerators
Ag Clean technology applies the antibacterial power of silver ions (Ag+) coated the surface of the refrigerator’s inside walls to keep the refrigerator free of bacteria and provide cleaner, constant air circulation for food that directly contacts the surface of fridge inside walls.
According to research studies, silver ions in Ag Clean technology can deactivate the respiration of bacteria cells, limit and inhibit the generation of bacteria from food and prevent the spread of odors inside the refrigerator. Therefore, the food is not only preserved fresh and delicious, but also ensures the health of all family members.
Hygiene water dispenser – suspend 99,99% bacteria with special antibacterial materials and eliminate odor with carbon filter
Panasonic refrigerators are also known for their convenient antibacterial water dispensers. Users can get cool water from the external water dispenser instead of opening and closing the refrigerator door many times.
The highlight of this feature is that the container is made of special antibacterial materials, does not contain BPA (carcinogen), effectively eliminate odors with carbon filtration, and especially it has the largest of-its-kind capacity, up to 3 liters.
