A 0.22 um filter will not remove either bacteriophages or eukaryotic 
viruses.  Indeed, the ability of viruses to pass through such filters and 
retain infectivity is what led to the discovery of viruses in the first 
place.  Fortunately, filters with smaller pore sizes are available which 
can be used to remove viruses from solutions..
