Excluding bacteria

I'm working with fieldstudies of fungal and bacterial activity in soil.
Now I would like to keep soil bacterium-free and fungus-free
respectively in order to study the pure fungal or bacterial activity.
This seems to be tricky and my first thoughts involve addition of
specific antibiotics, however I doubt they will stay in my soil-samples
for any longer period of time. 

Has anybody some suggestion how to keep soil free from bacteria and
fungi respectively?
