Decomposes moulds and mites (faeces and carcasses). Suppresses the causes of allergies.

It was confirmed that the Streamer technology decomposes mould and mites' carcasses and faeces.

* The results are obtained from demonstration of solely the Daikin Streamer discharge device in an experimental condition.

Demonstration of the decomposition against moulds and mites(carcasses)

Testing organization

Joint research with Wakayama Medical University

Test method

"Mould" and "mite (carcass)" were placed on the electrodes of the Streamer discharge unit, and after being exposed to the Streamer discharge for 15 minutes, they were photographed with an electron microscope.

Moulds

Moulds before and after 15 minutes of Streamer irradiation

Mites (carcasses)

Mites before and after 15 minutes of Streamer irradiation

* The results are obtained from demonstration of solely the Daikin streamer discharge device in experimental condition.

Demonstration of the suppression against moulds

Testing organization

Japan Food Research Laboratories

Test method

A test piece in which the bacterial solution was cultured was placed in a container, the test Streamer generator was operated, and the viable cell count was measured after 24 hours.

Moulds survival rate after 24 hours of Streamer irradiation

As a result of the experiment, it was confirmed that 99.9% of moulds was suppressed in 24 hours by the Streamer irradiation.

* The results are obtained from demonstration of solely the Daikin Streamer discharge device in an experimental condition.

Demonstration of the suppression against allergic effects of mites (faeces and carcasses)

Testing organization

Wakayama Medical University

Test method

Allergen analysis was confirmed by ELISA method using a test Streamer generator.

Suppression of allergic effects after 24 hours of Streamer irradiation

As a result of the experiment, it was confirmed that 99.6% of allergic effects of mites (faeces and carcasses) was suppressed in 24 hours by the Streamer irradiation.

* The results are obtained from demonstration of solely the Daikin Streamer discharge device in an experimental condition.

Relationship between moulds, mites and allergies

Since both moulds and mites prefer a moist environment, they breed when the humidity is high. Moreover, because the mites in the room are fed by moulds, mites are more likely to occur in places where moulds breed. When these moulds and the faeces/carcasses of mites touch human's skin or be inhaled, they cause various allergic symptoms such as atopic dermatitis, asthma, rhinitis and itchy eyes.
