Thank you for your respond, 
Are you telling me that there is no such thing as adhesion? All you need 
is a filter with small enough pores? 
In that case how small must the filter poresize be in order to keep 
micro-organisms, like bacteria and viruses, from passing through? 
And also, can you affect the stickiness (adhesion?) of the filter? 
Meaning, can you use a filter with bigger pores and a specific 
chemical/biological treatment, and make it work as well as a filter with 
smaller pores?
Sincerely, Mr Bergstrom.
