Two Daikin air purification devices

Institut Pasteur de Lille evaluated the effectiveness of Daikin’s air purifiers against respiratory viruses.

According to tests performed in the laboratories of the Institut Pasteur de Lille, Daikin’s air purifiers remove more than 99.98% the human coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes*. This virus is of the same family as SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic.

The units have also been evaluated as 99.93% effective against the H1N1 virus in 2.5 minutes*. H1N1 is the virus causing common flu.

This means Daikin’s air purifiers are an additional measure in the fight against respiratory diseases. Our compact plug-and-play purifiers, whose effectiveness is achieved through a combination of the high performance electrostatic HEPA filter, which traps the virus, followed by an intense exposure to Daikin’s patented Flash Streamer technology, which removes the virus, can strongly contribute to reducing the risk of respiratory virus transmission.

*Daikin device MCK55WVM (commercial name MCK55W), tested by Institut Pasteur de Lille, removes 99.996 % of Human Coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes running time at ‘turbo’ speed in laboratory conditions(air-tight chamber with inner volume 0.47 m3, no air renewal). Human Coronavirus HCoV-229E is different from the virus responsible for COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, but belongs to the same family of coronaviruses.
Daikin device MC55WVM (commercial names MC55W/VB), tested by Institut Pasteur de Lille, removes 99.98 % of Human Coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes running time at ‘turbo’ speed in laboratory conditions (air-tight chamber with inner volume 1.4 m3, no air renewal). Human Coronavirus HCoV-229E is different from the virus responsible for COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, but belongs to the same family of coronaviruses.
