Effective for cleaning the air and removing:
Tested and officially certified by
99.98% of coronavirus removed in 2.5 minutes*
As tested by Institut Pasteur de Lille
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.
Efficient against allergens as recognized by BAF (British Allergy Foundation)
The Allergy UK Seal of Approval reassures that the product is efficient at reducing small particulates which may include allergens, bacteria and viruses.
Approved allergy-friendly quality of this product/service is certified by the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation
An independent advisory panel of 15 leading international scientists and technicians has developed the criteria ECARF uses to evaluate different product groups. They include threshold values and exclusion criteria that make an allergic reaction very unlikely. The criteria are regularly updated to reflect the latest scientific findings. A product receives the Seal when it can be proved through audits or studies that the criteria have been fulfilled. The Daikin Air Purifiers passed these tests and can be considered as allergy-friendly.

Daikin’s unique double method
1. The Streamer unit, a high power plasma discharge technology, decomposes harmful substances* inside the unit. These substances are either trapped on the HEPA filter or adsorbed to the deodorizing filter element.
* Substances including: viruses1, bacteria2, pollen3, mould spores4
1 Testing organization: Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science; Test result certificate 21_0026 (issued by same organization); Result of experiment: 99.9% removal of A-H1N1 virus after 1 hour.
2 Testing organization: Japan Food Research Laboratories. Test number: 15044988001-0201. Test method: Attached a test piece inoculated with bacteria liquid on the upstream side of a dust collection filter installed in an air purifier, and operated it in a test area of 25 m³. Counted the number of live bacteria after five hours. Test result: Reduced by more than 99% in five hours. Test unit: Tested with MCK55S (Japanese model), a model equivalent to MCK55W series (turbo operation).
3 Various allergens were irradiated by streamer discharge and the breakdown of protein in the allergens was verified using the ELISA method, cataphoresis, or an electron microscope (Joint research with Wakayama Medical University). Test example: ‘Japanese cedar pollen Cryj-1’; Test result: 99,6% or more decomposed and removed in 2 hours.
4 Testing organization: Japan Food Research Laboratories. Test number: 204041635-001. Test result: 99.9% or more of mould (Cladosporium) spores decomposed and removed in 24 hours.
2. The Active Plasma Ion generation unit provides further purification to the space, by adding purifying elements to the cleaned air. These could for example assist to deodorize smelling curtains and carpets.
Plasma discharge emits high-speed electrons.
The electrons collide and combine with nitrogen and oxygen in the air to form four kinds of elements.
These elements provide decomposition power.

- Breathe in air that is clean and healthy
- Control your humidity
- Fresh air
Breathe in air that is clean and healthy
Daikin air purifiers minimise asthma and allergy symptoms by removing dust particles and pollen from your air, and keep you healthy by filtering airborne bacteria and viruses.
Humidity is essential for healthy skin
The humidifying air purifier's slim water tank infuses moisture into the air when it is too dry, and keeps you from fighting dry hands or waking up with a scratchy throat.
Keep your air fresh
Our air purifiers control odours, so that your home always smells fresh and clean.
Three steps to decompose harmful substances
1 Powerful suction
Takes in air over a wide area from 3 directions.
2 Effective capturing of pollutants
Efficiently catches dust and pollutants with an electrostatic HEPA filter.
Uses Daikin's Streamer technology to decompose, by oxidation, harmful substances caught on the filter.*
Indoor Air Quality, A Daikin Experience
The Streamer Symbol consists of three C’s
CLASH: The dust collection filter catches the floating substances with the attached harmful gases and Streamer decomposes
the gases by oxidation.
CYCLE: The deodorising filter adsorbs and decomposes odour. Thanks to the regeneration of the adsorbing capacity, the deodorising capacity is maintained. No need to change the deodorising filter , unlike air purifiers with activated carbon filters.
CLEAN: Removes bacteria from dust collection filter and humidifying filter.
High performance HEPA filter to catch fine particles of dust
Removes 99% of particles between 0.1μm and 2.5μm in size
The filter collects dust efficiently with electrostatic forces. It is not prone to clogging compared with non-electrostatic HEPA filters which collect particles only by the fineness of the mesh.
Therefore, a larger amount of air can pass through the filter and can purify a larger amount of air than other technologies.
Electrostatic HEPA filter vs Non-electrostatic filter
- Removes 99,97% of fine particles of 0,3μm
- Filter fiber itself is charged with static electricity, and collects particles efficiently
- Doesn’t clog easily, hence less pressure loss
- Because it catches particles relying only on mesh size, it is necessary to make mesh finer, making it easy to be clogged and cause high pressure loss
Unique vertical structure
It may become necessary to change out items that usually do not require replacing due to environmental and operational conditions.

Explore our Air Purifiers
The air we breathe at home or indoors is up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Thanks to its unique “catch & clean” approach, the Daikin air purifier captures and removes pollutants, reducing indoor pollution and improving the quality of the air in your home, office, shop, etc.
The Daikin air purifier helps us breathe clean air by essential reduction of viruses, fine dust and allergens. According to tests performed in the laboratories of the Institut Pasteur de Lille, Daikin air purifiers remove at least 99,98% of 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. Daikin air purifiers also helping us to prevent allergies as recognized for example by the reputed British Allergy Foundation. The deodorising filter of Daikin air purifiers successfully captures and absorbs odours wherever it’s needed.
The Daikin air purifier is equipped with an advanced filter system that captures viruses, bacteria and allergens meanwhile its patented Streamer technology takes care of removing it and keeping both the indoor air and the air purifier filters clean. The prefilter captures larger particles, trapping them inside. Thanks to its electrostatic capacity, Daikin HEPA filter catches pollutants without clogging the mesh, meaning that it does not need to be replaced for 10 years. The deodorising filter captures and absorbs odours without becoming saturated as happens with traditional activated carbon filters. Finally, the humidifier filter (exclusive to Daikin air purifier model equipped with humidifier) eliminates bacteria in the water tank thanks to the double layer filter with silver ion cartridge.
Yes, the Daikin air purifier has been tested and certified by the prestigious ECARF institute as an ideal product for people with allergies. Above that the Daikin Air purifier is also recognized as efficient by BAF (British Allergy Foundation). This seal reassures that the product is efficient at reducing small particles which may include allergens, bacteria and viruses.
