How nanoe™ X works

nanoe™ X reaches virus.

Hydroxyl radicals denature virus proteins.

Virus activity is inhibited.1–6


Certain bacteria and viruses are far too small to see

The difference in size between a certain bacteria and viruses is about the same as the difference between apples and sesame seeds.


The virus survives different periods on different surfaces

Survival period varies depending on surface, from 3 hours to 7 days.


Type of substances Survival period
Paper, tissue 3 hours
Copper surface* 4 hours
Cardboard surface 24 hours
Cloth surface 2 days
Plastic surface 3 days
Glass surface 4 days
Banknote surface 4 days
Outside of surgical mask 7 days

*Copper naturally degrades certain bacteria and viruses.
Survival period differs depending on surface irregularities.
Viruses survive longer on smooth surfaces than on irregular surfaces.

1Airborne bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus). Testing organisation: Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science. Testing method: The number of bacteria was measured after direct exposure in an approximately 25m3-sized airtight test chamber. Inhibition method: nanoe™ released. Target substance: Airborne bacteria. Test result: Inhibited by at least 99.7% in 4 hours. (24_0301_1)
2Adhered bacteria (O157). Testing organisation: Japan Food Research Laboratories. Testing method: Measured the number of bacteria adhered to a cloth in an approximately 45 L-sized airtight test chamber. Inhibition method: nanoe™ released. Target substance: Adhered bacteria. Test result: Inhibited by at least 99.99% in 1 hour. (208120880_001)
3Adhered bacteria (MRSA). Testing organisation: Japan Food Research Laboratories. Testing method: Measured the number of bacteria adhered to a cloth in an approximately 45-L-sized airtight test chamber. Inhibition method: nanoe™ released. Target substance: Adhered bacteria. Test result: Inhibited by at least 99.99% in 1 hour. (208120880_002)
4Airborne viruses (bacteriophageΦχ174). Testing organisation: Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science.

6Adhered viruses (Poliovirus type1(Lsc-2ab)). Testing organisation: Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science. Testing method: Measured the number of viruses adhered to a cloth in an approximately 45 L-sized airtight test chamber. Inhibition method: nanoe™ released. Target substance: Adhered viruses. Test result: Inhibited by at least 99.7% in 2 hours. (22_0096)

Results may vary based on usage and seasonal and environmental variables (temperature and humidity). nanoe™ X and nanoe™ inhibit activity or growth of pollutants, but do not prevent illness.
