How effective is the bacterial filter for the spirometer?

Vernier spirometers use a bacterial filter that is manufactured by Microgard. It is designed to capture 99% of all aerosolized bacterial and viral pathogens. It is the same type of filter used in hospitals by respiratory technicians.

The PDF below is the specifications sheet released by Microgard for this filter.
