The electroadsorption of E. coli and S. typhimurium cells on fibrous carbon electrodes was investigated. Anode-cathode pairs were arranged in series to form a multistage electrofilter through which the bacterial suspension flows in a flow-through mode. Both bacteria species were strongly attached to an electrically charged electrode bed and total removal of bacterial cells was achieved.
