Nephros believes that, with Dual Stage technology and 0.005 micron filtration, we have developed the safest and the only water filter on the market that can effectively deliver point of use biocontaminant-free water for drinking and bathing. Bacteria sizes range from 0.5 to 5 microns; viruses and other bio-toxins are considerably smaller, although the vast majority of known biological toxins are .005 microns in size or larger.
