The emitted qi was produced to act respectively on prokaryote Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus cereus, eukaryote saccharomyces sp. and biologically big molecules — seven pectin enzymes. After 13 times of repeated experiments, the physical property of the emitted qi was proved from the following aspects.

Firstly, Staphylococcus aureus was treated by it for 8 minutes, the lethal rate was 76%, 1.29 times as effective as that of the bactericidal rate of 2% carbolic acid in equal time.

Secondly, it had different lethal influence on different bacteria. For example, the lethal rate on Bacillus species was 41.9%, while on non-Bacillus species was 72.9%. The former was lower than the latter. It was also different in microbe's different growing period. For example, the lethal rate on vegetative cells of Bacillus cereus is 50% (mean of 4 times experiments) and it was 41.3% with regard to the resting spore.

Third!y, it had lethal influence on not only prokaryote but also eukaryote. For example, the lethal rate on Saccharomyces carlbergensis was 34%. Fourthly, it could lead to changes of the resistance of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa to 22 different kinds of medicines. Fifthly, it had obvious influence on pectin enzyme activity. Sixthly, it could act through some glass obstacles, which showed its strong penetration and direction.

In brief, the biological effect produced by the emitted qi on microbe is much similar to that produced by physical and chemical factors. Therefore, the identification of the physical property of the emitted qi is reliable and convincible.
